WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Academy of Sciences is a private, non-profit organization charged with providing independent, objective advice to the nation on matters related to science and technology. This study, "Science and Technology Capabilities at the Department of State," will recruit U.S. foreign policy and scientific experts from public and private sectors to reevaluate, in light of new global challenges and advances, how the Department of State uses science and technology to achieve foreign policy objectives. The project will include meetings, research, reviews and analyses, interviews and field visits. Funds will be used for a final report, meetings, travel and partial salaries.
2013 (Duration 2 years, 6 months)
WASHINGTON, D.C. — To study the economic and fiscal consequences of immigration (over two years).
2013 (Duration 1 year)
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Medicine will convene a workshop with an interdisciplinary committee of economists, social scientists, researchers, and policy experts to highlight issues on reaching consensus on the standards for benefit-cost analysis for preventive interventions for children, youth, and families. Although benefit-cost analysis holds much promise for influencing policy, there is an absence of broad-based agreement and consistent application of theoretical, technical, and reporting standards that diminishes its use by policymakers. Workshop findings could inform the development of standards to guide future benefit-cost studies, ensure greater consistency and comparability across studies, and enhance benefit-cost analysis' value among government and other decision-makers.
