The Gordon Research Seminar on Science & Technology Policy is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas. We invite abstract submissions for presentations and posters by scholars and practitioners in: economics, science and engineering, science and technology policy, and science and technology studies.

The theme of the 2012 meeting is “The International Context of Science and Technology Policy”. The keynote will discuss conflict, cooperation, collaboration and competition in science and technology policy. We hope (but do not require) that the presentations and posters will raise questions such as:

  • Which international institutions, multinational corporations, and non-governmental organizations are demonstrating promising results in collaborative efforts to address global health issues?
  • How has international conflict co-produced energy regimes and security?
poster session
  • Is science and technology policy for energy shaped by an intense competition and/or mutual collaboration between national programs striving towards the Green Economy?
  • How does the interest in Global Climate Change affect other global issues and their policy solutions?
  • How do multilateral policies shape cooperation around issues of energy, health, and the environment?
  • How is civil society implicated in these processes of conflict, cooperation, collaboration and competition?
While covering broad themes of health, energy, and the environment, this particular conference is encouraging junior scholars to examine the international implications of their policy case studies and theory. This seminar will include a career panel of recent graduates who have gone into science and technology policy research or practice.
