Expert Opinions on Relevant Topics
CCST Expert Briefings are presentations by panels of relevant experts on a range of science or technology topics. CCST uses Expert Briefings to convey the results of its reports (including Emerging Topics and Commissioned Reports). Expert Briefings may also be convened at the request of the Capitol community as part of a "Rapid Response" to provide reliable, impartial expertise on topics when decision makers need information in a relatively short timeframe. Each CCST Expert Briefing is accompanied by a clearly written CCST One Pager, which succinctly summarizes the background information and policy-relevant discussions necessary for a reader to be briefed on the topic in question.
