SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: The
Presidential Memorandum on Restoring
Trust in Government Through Scientific
Integrity and Evidence-Based
Policymaking, issued on January 27,
2021, calls for the establishment of an
interagency Task Force on Scientific
Integrity of the National Science and
Technology Council to review the
effectiveness of agency scientific
integrity policies developed since the
issuance of the Presidential
Memorandum of March 9, 2009 on
scientific integrity. To inform its review,
the Task Force is organizing a series of
virtual listening sessions to hear from
members of the public who produce,
communicate, and use scientific and
technical information. Perspectives
gathered during the virtual listening
sessions will inform the Task Force’s
assessment of Federal agencies’
scientific-integrity policies and
identification of best practices and
lessons-learned.
Each of three listening sessions will
be organized around a particular theme
and audience, described below:
Session 1 (Wednesday, July 28, 2:00
p.m. to 4:00 p.m. EDT):
Communications, including effective
policies and practices to improve the
communication of scientific and
technological information, including for
engagement of Federal scientists and
contractors with news media and on
social media. The target audience
includes individuals from news media,
science writers, and science
communicators.
Session 2 (Thursday, July 29, 2021,
11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. EDT): Science
and Education, including effective
policies and practices to support
professional development of scientists
and researchers of all genders, races,
ethnicities, and backgrounds; address
scientific-integrity issues related to
emerging technologies, such as artificial
intelligence and machine-learning, and
evolving scientific practices, such as
citizen science and community-engaged
research; improve training of scientific
staff about scientific integrity; and
handle disagreements about scientific
methods and conclusions. The target
audience includes scientists, engineers,
and educators from the Federal and
non-Federal sectors.
Session 3 (Friday, July 30, 2021, 2:00
p.m. to 4:00 p.m. EDT): Use of Scientific
and Technical Information, including
the effectiveness of Federal scientific
integrity policies in promoting trust in
Federal science and concerns about a
lack of scientific integrity impeding the
equitable delivery of the Federal
Government’s programs. Target
audience includes individuals who use
Federal scientific and technical
information for decision-making or
provision of services; individuals from
disadvantaged communities; and other
consumers of science.
Participants in all sessions may also
