California has changed a great deal in the sixteen years since CCST was founded, and we have worked hard to ensure that we have kept pace. The Legislature’s original intent in founding CCST was to create a nonpartisan, impartial organization that could offer expert advice and provide recommendations for addressing science and technology-related public policy issues as they arose. Over time, we have built an organization capable of meeting this mandate, and we are now embarking on an ambitious plan to increase our capabilities significantly by partnering with the National Academies.
