Should governments regulate potentially transformative emerging science and technology, such as the use of biometric technologies in schools, and if so, how? Can we do better science, and develop better technologies, to ensure social benefit? How can scientists and engineers better engage the public and policymakers?
These are the questions addressed by aspiring scientists, engineers, and policymakers across the university—to innovate explicitly for the public good.
Whether you want to conduct public policy analysis, or just better understand the political and policy landscape of science and technology, STPP provides tools and frameworks to analyze the relationships between science, technology, equity, and related policies.
