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.
