About the CSIP Forums: Science, technology and innovation policy is essential in shaping our future. Translating the narrative into clear options, strategies and outcomes is necessary, but far from simple. CSIP invites all students, faculty, researchers, and citizens interested in the study of science, technology and innovation policy to participate in these bi-weekly forums.
