The White House passed along an advisory that the next meeting of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) will take place on March 9 at 10:00 a.m. EST. The meeting will run until 3:00 p.m. at the "Root Room" of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington D.C. While the focus of this meeting is not necessarily exciting, it is interesting to see how policy makers, academics, and government officials approach science and technology.
The primary topics to be discussed include science, technology, and innovation at the Department of Agriculture, China and U.S. competitiveness, nanotechnology research and development, the future of the U.S. Science and Technology Research Enterprise, and advancing innovation in drug development and evaluation. Key speakers include Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, President of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation Robert D. Atkinson, and Professor Emeritus for the Department of Political Science at the University of Oregon Richard P.Suttmeier.
The entire meeting will be live-streamed at www.whitehouse.gov if you are interested.
