Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Notice of meeting.


The Board of Scientific Counselors for the U.S. EPA has convened a Communications ad hoc subcommittee to examine how effectively EPA Office of Research and Development (ORD) funded research results are currently communicated, both within and beyond the agency, and how they might be more effectively communicated. The immediate goal of the subcommittee effort is to help EPA/ORD more effectively disseminate ORD's research products, to explain their significance, and to assist others inside and outside the agency in applying them. To this end, on May 15, 2003, the BOSC meeting will include two sessions devoted to communication of research results. The morning session will include presentations from ORD labs and centers of a handful of their best practices in this regard. The afternoon session will include presentations of best practices from a small sample of other organizations and agencies. Both sessions will include discussions of related communications issues, including (but not limited to) defining communication goals, audience identification, criteria for evaluating efforts to communicate research results, and factors that affect their success.


On Thursday, May 15, the meeting will begin at 8 a.m. and recess at 5:30 p.m. and on Friday, May 16, 2003, the meeting will reconvene at 8:30 a.m. and will adjourn at approximately 3:30 p.m. All times noted are eastern time.


The Meeting will be held at the Lowe's L'Enfant Plaza Hotel, 480 L'Enfant Plaza, SW., Washington, DC 20024.
