SP Grads

The Center for Science and Technology Policy Research hosts an interdisciplinary group of graduate students and early career scientists interested in science and technology policy issues known as "SPGrads." SPGrads meets approximately once a month to hear talks by experts in the science and technology policy field, and to discuss issues of concern to the participants. Over the past several months, SPGrads has had an impressive line-up of speakers: on December 14, Rad Byerly, Center Visiting Scholar and former Chief of Staff of the House Committee on Science and Technology, described the federal budget process for scientists; on January 23, Hunter Lovins of the Rocky Mountain Institute discussed the concept of natural capitalism; on March 8, Doug Kenney of the University of Colorado's Natural Resources Law Center presented a talk entitled "Water Resources Decision-Making in Colorado in the Face of Growth and Climate Change;" and on April 26, Professor William Lewis of the University of Colorado (and also the chair of the National Academy of Sciences Committee on Endangered and Threatened Fishes in the Klamath River Basin) gave a talk on "Policy, Politics, Law, and Science: Elements in the Fate of Endangered Fishes of the Klamath River Basin." The Center also sponsors a listserv and website for SPGrads which includes an extensive list of links to jobs around the world. Click here to visit the SPGrads site.
