The Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) will hold a meeting of the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST). During this open meeting, PCAST is scheduled to discuss the identification of science and technology issues that PCAST members will address and also discuss setting priorities.
PCAST is an advisory group of the nation's leading scientists and engineers, appointed by the President to augment the science and technology advice available to him from inside the White House, cabinet departments, and other Federal agencies. PCAST is consulted about and provides analyses and recommendations concerning a wide range of issues where understandings from the domains of science, technology, and innovation may bear on the policy choices before the President. PCAST is chaired by Dr. Kelvin Droegemeier, OSTP Director.
