Mission: The Ohio Science Policy Consortium (OSPC) was founded by a group of Ph.D. candidates in the State of Ohio in 2020. Our mission is to bridge the gap between science and policy, integrate evidence into policymaking, and support innovation to better the lives of all Ohioans.
How We Work: OSPC connects any Ohio organization that is involved or interested in science policy, promotes collaboration, and initiates programs in science policy.
What We Do: Our main initiative is the Ohio Science and Technology Policy Fellowship (OHSTPF) program. This program places fellows with doctorate degrees in advisory positions to work directly with policymakers to analyze, communicate, and define scientific expertise related to a specific policy need.
How to Get Involved: The Ohio Science Policy Consortium is a new organization. We are currently working to build a coalition of organizations involving science and policy to support our initiatives. Please contact us with questions, support, and ideas!
