Statement from the Day One Project S&T Leadership Council on the Incoming Biden-Harris Administration and the Way Forward


Heading 2

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Day One Project S&T Leadership Council released the statement below following the election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and the way forward:


“The Biden-Harris Administration presents a new opportunity for the Day One Project to share its thinking around actionable ideas in science and technology policy. The nation faces a number of pressing challenges: the health and economic crisis resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, challenges presented by emerging technology, and more, that the next administration must get right on day one. The Day One Project was launched on a nonpartisan basis to engage new and expert voices across the science and technology community to develop smart policy proposals that can be implemented in January 2021 and the months that follow. We are eager to get to work and share these ideas.”


The Day One Project’s S&T Leadership Council is chaired by John Holdren and Susan Eisenhower and includes Wanda Austin, Ryan Costello, Margaret Hamburg, Eric Lander, Arati Prabhakar, Kathy Sullivan, and Deborah Wince-Smith. Read more about the Council here.
