Abstract

The Mosakowski Institute for Public Enterprise and the George Perkins Marsh Institute presented "Closing the Gap Between Science and Practice" by Roger E. Kasperson on Tuesday, September 23rd at 3 pm in the Grace Conference Room, Higgins University Center.

Science has been responsible for many of humankind's most important advances, from vaccines to increasing crop yields to the Internet. Yet the quest for and discovery of new knowledge does not always translate into improvements in societal practices and public policies. Roger Kasperson, a distinguished scholar and member of the National Academy of Sciences, considered ways to close the gap between science and practice.
