Welcome to SciencePolicy.org


Establish a connection between City Hall and local scientists to research, with open science principles, community problems and draft science-driven policy.


Improving local communities through education, research, and development.


Bills passed by lawmakers become more well informed, and the research science will positively impact local communities.

1. Create a reporting structure for City Halls or Municipalities to their local Research Institutions. Problems in the local community that need to be researched will be communicated, researched and reported back in the form of science-guided publicy policy.

2. Drive research within degree-granting schools that looks at community-indentified problems. Creating a way for Universities and Colleges to easily find local problems in their communities will help benefit the local community and provide direct examples of research for funding applications.

3. Pass science-driven policies that can be used as a template for other incorporated places dealing with similar problems. Through open source and transparent methods, science-driven public policy will be available to all.

Expected Results

Number of bills passed in local legislatures, percentage of 'incorporated places' that have connected to a local degree-granting school, number of bills available to be drafted into legislation.
