Science of Science Policy at NIH

Submitted by jrosenbloom on


On April 7-8, 2016, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Science Policy (OSP) co-sponsored the “NIH and the Science of Science and Innovation Policy: A Joint NIH-NSF Workshop.” Along with OSP, the workshop was jointly organized by the National Science Foundation’s Science of Science and Innovation Policy (SciSIP) program and several offices within the NIH Office of the Director.

The goals of the meeting were:

1)To inform NIH staff–including policymakers, policy analysts, and program staff–about insights obtained through SciSIP-sponsored research that may be applicable to NIH.

2)To inform the SciSIP research community about some of NIH’s most pressing policy research questions.

3)To solidify ways in which NIH and the SciSIP community can work together by: (a) clarifying issues that are relevant to both NIH leaders and the SciSIP academic community, (b) identifying those types of public and administrative data available through NIH that are most relevant to SciSIP research, and (c) communicating best practices for accessing and using NIH’s administrative data.
