Graduate students participate in an environmental science "charrette" held in Snowbird, Utah, designed to assess interdisciplinary collaboration, August 2006.

The Future of Science Program supports scientists and science managers in interpreting and navigating the latest structural and cultural transformations of the American scientific enterprise. Starting in 2004, we have convened groups of experts to examine questions on such topics as interdisciplinarity, intellectual property, collaboration, and technological change. Our ultimate goal is to inform both public and private sectors about the challenges facing our nation as we work to establish the future of scientific education and research at all levels.
