Interdisciplinary Engagement, Capacity and Research
The ISSP’s research programme focusses on the interface of science, society and policy, and addresses the Institute’s key themes of science for policy (evidence-informed decision-making), policy for science (science, technology and innovation policies) and governance of emerging technologies.
We address pressing public-policy challenges and engage senior practitioner perspectives in all of our research projects. We convene diverse disciplinary perspectives and foster robust partnerships between academia, government, industry, the science community, NGOs and Indigenous representatives.
