The Decadal Survey on Astronomy and Astrophysics (Astro2020) is a partnership between the National Academies and the astronomical community to identify key priorities in astronomy and astrophysics and develop a comprehensive strategy for agency investments in the upcoming decade.

 

The survey, sponsored by NASA, NSF, and DOE, will be driven by input from the scientific community and serve as a guide for scientists, policy makers, and federal agencies. The final report will present a broad vision for transformative science at the frontiers of astronomy and astrophysics.

Call for Input:  Astro2020 Panel on the State of the profession and Societal Impacts

Astro2020 is the first decadal survey of astronomy and astrophysics to establish a Panel on the State of the Profession and Societal Impacts.  Its goal is to assess the health of the community, including topics such as demographics, diversity and inclusion, workplace climate, workforce development, education, and public engagement.  Community input is critical for this endeavor, and we invite you to share your thoughts, ideas, and comments with the panel by completing this form.  This input will help the panel make actionable suggestions to the Astro2020 steering committee on what the profession should look like in 2030 and how that vision can be realized.  Submissions can be made either anonymously or signed.  Only comments received by March 6, 2020, will be considered by the panel.  Submit input here.
