The need for U.S. foreign and development policy to be informed by science, technology, and health has perhaps never been more important. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, additional global challenges such as climate change, rapidly emerging technologies, and geopolitical competition underscore the importance of strong integration of science, technology, and health into diplomatic and development missions for American prosperity and security.
In September 2020, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, held a workshop to identify approaches to strengthen science, technology, and health capabilities at the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development over the next 5 to 10 years. The workshop featured brief presentations by leading American experts from government agencies, universities, research centers, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector, and several leaders from abroad who are actively integrating science and technology developments in the foreign policies of their countries. This publication is a summary of the presentations and the discussions during the workshop.
