ECAST report for NASA is released!

ecast-report-coverNASA HQ just published a press release announcing their collaboration with Experts and Citizens Assessing Science and Technology (ECAST) on the Asteroid Initiative. This report and the events that will follow over the next few months is the culmination of over two years of discussions, brainstorming and collaboration between our network and NASA administrators to design and execute two major full day public deliberations about the complexities of the science, technology and human expectations for the future paths the agency’s development and resources can take in the coming years. The report had its official release on October 1 in Washington DC in the New Tools of Science Policy Seminar entitled “From Asteroids to Oceans: Using public Engagement to Inform Policy Decisions” at the Consortium for Science, Policy and Outcomes.
