Institute for Science, Technology and Public Policy Celebrates 10th Anniversary This Fall

September 16, 2010

The Institute for Science, Technology and Public Policy first opened its doors in the autumn of 2000. Approved by the Board of Regents as an interdisciplinary, system-wide institute, and with the backing of then Dean Robert Gates, the Institute’s mission was to establish the interdisciplinary research and service unit required to address complex contemporary policy problems.

In the ten years since its inception the Institute has attracted over $15 million in funding for interdisciplinary research for more than 20 projects. ISTPP has partnered with over 200 researchers from the Texas A&M University System and other U.S. universities on research proposals, funded projects, and scholarship. ISTPP researchers have also partnered internationally, with research collaborations in China, Germany, and the United Kingdom.

ISTPP has also provided opportunities for graduate students in the Bush School to participate in ground-breaking research, to work on scholarly publications, and to interact with researchers from around the nation. Over the past decade, ISTPP has employed over 50 Bush students who have participated in the real world research that informs policy.

A ceremony marking ISTPP’s 10th anniversary will take place in the Bush Court at 2 p.m. on October 15, 2010.
