PHOTOS: Scenes from CCST Science & Technology Week 2020

CCST’s week-long series of events, this year celebrating ‘Science At Your Service: Achieving California’s Carbon Neutrality Goals,’ began with a reception honoring our Science in Public Service Award recipients and continued with the CCST Science Translators Showcase, the CCST Leadership Roundtable, and two CCST Expert Briefings.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. | February 21, 2020

CCST S&T Week 2020 was full of events for decision makers, staffers, and our network of experts alike—showcasing the science services that we provide to the Capitol community.

Pictured below, this year’s Science in Public Service Award recipients, Dr. Louise Bedsworth and Senator Jerry Hill, were both recognized during the CCST S&T Week 2020 Reception and Leadership Awards Ceremony on February 3, 2020.

Our 2020 Leadership Roundtable brought together California’s leading decision makers with CCST’s Board of Directors and network of experts from our Partner Institutions to discuss the emerging and urgent priorities facing the State.

The 2020 CCST Science Translators Showcase featured graduate students and postdocs from California’s many research institutions, presenting their research to the Capitol community in a conversational mixer.

S&T Week 2020 also featured two CCST Expert Briefings, including a discussion with economist Judson Boomhower of UC San Diego, the lead author of CCST’s latest study on orphan wells in California, and a panel on the potential role of negative emissions in meeting California’s climate goals.
