The Science, Technology, and Environment Policy Lab
The Science, Technology, and Environment Policy Lab offers a unique research environment for faculty, graduate students, and practitioners on science, technology, and environment policy issues. Located in the Department of Public Administration at the University of Illinois at Chicago, the STE Policy Lab helps support a Ph.D. program in Science and Technology through funded projects which enable the training of a new generation of social scientists dedicated to multidisciplinary approaches to addressing local, national, and global challenges and opportunities at the interface of ST&E and society. The STE Policy Lab is led by Dr. Eric Welch. (More Information)
