Estevan Santana ’15 and other CCST Science & Technology Policy Fellowship alumni will be among the participants of the 2017 Annual Planning Meeting of ESEP — Engaging Scientists & Engineers in Policy — an ad hoc alliance of organizations and individuals interested in empowering scientists and engineers to engage in the policymaking process at all levels of government. ESEP shares training resources, collaboration opportunities, and builds professional networks across U.S. states. Bish Paul ’17 serves as the primary liaison between the CCST Science Fellows Alumni Association and ESEP.
#ESEP was incubated via the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), Association of American Universities, and other scientific societies and university associations. Science policy professionals interested in attending the ESEP Planning Meeting should contact Hannah Poulson at Hannah.Poulson@aau.edu by March 22nd.
