The Commons Lab Presents a Roundtable in Open Innovation and Science:

National Plan for Civil Earth Observations

Thursday, September 4th, 1:00pm - 2:30pm, 6th Floor Boardroom

In July 2014, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and the U.S. Group on Earth Observations (USGEO) released the National Plan for Civil Earth Observations. Developed from the results of the first-ever assessment of the Federal civil earth observation enterprise, the Plan provides strategic guidance for a balanced portfolio approach to managing civil earth observations to fulfill agency mandates, achieve national objectives, and help inform Federal investments in civil earth observations. This briefing will highlight the key components of the National Plan, outline its impacts across Federal agencies involved in earth observations, and review associated efforts to enable interagency coordination.

Moderator:

  • Lea Shanley, Director, Commons Lab, Woodrow Wilson Center

Speakers:

  • Peter Colohan, Assistant Director for Environmental Information, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy
  • Tim Stryker, Program Director for the US Group on Earth Observations, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy
