The National Research Council’s Science and Technology for Sustainability Program organized a two and a half day public symposium, Science, Innovation, and Partnerships for Sustainability Solutions. During the symposium, experts examined the National Science Foundation’s and other Federal agencies’ investments in research related to sustainability, including the most significant outcomes of these investments. In addition, participants identified opportunities and key priorities to enhance the link between science and decision making and to help encourage practices that would promote sustainability; and to foster partnerships and linkages between disciplines, sectors and agencies. The symposium included participants from federal, state and local government, the private sector, academia, nongovernmental organizations, and international bodies involved in sustainability issues. A brief summary of the event will be issued and widely disseminated to the public.  This symposium was supported by the National Science Foundation.
