About the STEP Seminar Series
The STEP Seminar Series is an interdisciplinary platform for scholars and practitioners to discuss research and policy issues in the broad domain of science, technology, and environmental policy. The seminars provide an informal setting for feedback and engagement with ongoing research projects and policy debates. We invite scholars from all disciplines and practitioners working in all action arenas with connections to the fields of scholarship that shape science, technology, and environmental policy. The seminar series takes place throughout the academic year, typically over lunchtime on Mondays.
Interested speakers should email Olivia Schares for a list of available dates.
