SBE 2020: Submission Detail

ID Number: 118
Title: From Barriers to Bridges: Turning Great Science into Effective Policy
Lead Author: Zvonkovic, Anisa M.
Abstract: The United States excels at producing and publishing scientifically reputable results, but lags substantially at translating them into outcomes that could improve the lots of all who are affected by the research. We do not spend our research dollars and time studying how to overcome the barriers to why great science does not become great public policy. The challenge is to study how to change this state of affairs, a question that will require some fundamental research into how scientific findings that have the potential to improve life on this planet can overcome the political, cultural, and other barriers that prevent what we know from being put to work to improve the state of the world. We provide five illustrative areas of scholarship in which building bridges to transcend barriers between hard sciences and social, economic, and behavioral sciences would result in useful policy and beneficial outcomes.
