About
CCST

Established in response to a unanimous vote of the California State Legislature in 1988, the California Council on Science and Technology is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that draws upon the greatest scientific minds in the state to provide expert and unbiased scientific advice to the state government to inform science and technology-related public policy issues.

CCST is committed to promoting the responsible application of science and technology to inform public policy decisions in the State of California. CCST assists California legislators by providing scientifically based technical information needed to make sound decisions; supports efforts to improve science education in the state and sponsors various venues for dialogue on issues pertaining to the intersection of science and policy. Providing the California Science and Technology Policy Fellowships enables CCST to further our mandate to improve effective communication between scientists, engineers and the public policy arena.
