History of the MIT Science Impact Collaborative

MIT established the Science Impact Collaborative in 2003 with support from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) to find new and better ways of incorporating science into value-laden societal decisions and to develop better ways of involving a wide range of stakeholders in environmental policy-making and natural resource management decisions. The activities of the Science Impact Collaborative include theory building, teaching, curriculum development, training, and the creation of new modeling and public education tools.
