Center for Science, Technology and Environmental Policy Studies

(CSTEPS)

 

The Center for Science, Technology and Environmental Policy Studies conducts research, evaluates policy, and develops solutions for some of the world’s most pressing challenges at the nexus of scientific, societal, technological, and environmental change.

 

 

CSTEPS does research to understand the processes, institutions, organizations and individual incentives and motivations that affect the development and production of science. We research the role of science and technology in advancing public goods and services and we develop and advance policy recommendations that improve how science is conducted to achieve important social and environmental outcomes. We integrate students and early career scholars in all aspects of our research.
