To meet this moment when the country faces critical challenges such as COVID-19, climate change, and intensified competition with U.S. leadership in science, technology, and innovation, we are working together with the National Science Policy Network (NSPN) to identify a cohort of early career researchers — new, diverse voices — to generate a compelling set of actionable new policy proposals, and shape the future of science policy.

​By harnessing the creativity and energy of diverse, early-career researchers with the proven track record of a FAS Day One Science Policy Accelerator, we hope to empower new voices to develop compelling policy ideas into actionable policy memos and mobilize decision-makers to make changes that improve people’s well-being.
