Pesner's paper recognized in JSPG Policy Position Paper Competition

Engineering and Public Policy Ph.D. student Jeremy Pesner has been recognized for his paper, “Ensuring Social Impact at Every Stage of Technology Research & Development.” He received third place in The Journal of Science Policy & Governance - JSPG Policy Position Paper Competition. His work is part of a special issue focused on shaping the future of science policy.

"It is long past time to fully attune our science enterprises to [the issues like environmental quality, social justice, economic disparities and infrastructure decay]” says Pesner.

For his efforts, Pesner will receive a cash prize, have his paper published in The Journal of Science Policy & Governance, and receive support from the journal, The Kavli Foundation, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science to advocate for his proposed policies in front of relevant bodies.
