2021 Annual Meeting: Renewed Investment in STEM
Wednesday, October 20, 2021, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM EDT
The New York Academy of Sciences
Accompanying the new Biden-Harris administration is an ongoing promise to usher in an era of renewed investment in STEM research and development. President Biden has appointed scientists and technologists to top positions within the administration, recommitted to the Paris Climate Agreement, and pursued budget proposals that emphasize applied research and public health. In short, the new administration has positioned itself as an advocate for STEM and has emphasized the important link between science and society.
We invite our Members to join us at the 203rd Annual Meeting of the New York Academy of Sciences, which will feature a conversation with policy experts exploring the impact of the administration’s renewed investment in STEM, including its impact on international scientific collaboration, building public trust in science, and on health equity and environmental justice initiatives.
