Description

Calling All Students Interested in the Ethical Intersection of Science, Technology, and Policy!

Student Pugwash USA is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Nobel Peace Prize-winning Pugwash Conferences on Science and World
Affairs.

Join students and experts from across the country for the 14th Student Pugwash USA Conference “Promoting the Integrity of Science” in the heart of the Nation’s Capital!

Researchers worldwide are grappling with issues of integrity surrounding politics in science, conflicts of interest, falsified research, the peer review process, and protections for whistle blowers. Engage with other inquisitive and motivated students in in-depth discussion and debate on the cutting-edge issues as well as the development of a nationwide student initiative to promote the integrity of science.

There will also be Scientific Poster and Creative Arts Contests open to students attending the conference.
