Science & Diplomacy with Dr. Bill Colglazier


Join us and this former UT faculty member for this important talk on science and diplomacy, sponsored by the Office of Research and Engagement and the Baker Center.

Science and technology have become even more important assets for diplomacy. Nearly every country has been convinced that it must engage on a world-class level in science and technology and become more innovative in this highly competitive and interconnected world. As a consequence, science diplomacy becomes an important mechanism to help build more knowledge and innovation-based societies and to help spread scientific values, including meritocracy and transparency, that support democracy.  

Dr. E. William Colglazier, Science and Technology Adviser to the Secretary of State

Former UT Physics professor and director of the Energy, Environment and Resources Center (1983-91), Former Executive Officer of the National Academy of Sciences and National Research Council (1994-2011).
