The strength of the U.S. science and technology enterprise is central to our nation's ongoing vitality and security. The Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) works within the White House and with all of the federal science and technology agencies to develop policy and guide investments. It plays a leadership role in providing advice and coordinating programs. The speaker, who has served in senior leadership positions in both OSTP and key agencies, will provide some perspectives on OSTP's role in specific issues and its relationship with agencies.
