The Dupont Summit

The 8th Annual Dupont Summit 2015 on Science, 
Technology, and Environmental Policy
Friday, December 4, The Historic Whittemore House, Washington DC
The purpose of the Dupont Summit is to promote interdisciplinary dialogue about pressing issues related to science, technology and the environment. The conference mirrors the interest of the PSO and its partners in promoting conversation about current policy concerns.
Presented every year on the first Friday of December, the conference brings together academics, government, business and social leaders from a variety of backgrounds, for discussion about issues that include but that are not limited to health, energy, national security, information and telecommunications, environment and climate change, biotechnology, genetics and stem cells, water and natural resources, science research and education, technology and innovation, space, and ethical, legal and social implications of science and technology. Other topics are welcome. Our goal is to promote multidisciplinary conversation and networking across the social and political spectrum.
