Join the Science of Science Conversation

The Center for Science of Science and Innovation (CSSI) is the first center world-wide dedicated to the field of the science of science. The center helps bring together faculty and students across the globe to build a vibrant community for the field. Please take a look at the upcoming events, and please email if you are interested in joining. 

The inaugural International Conference on Science of Science and Innovation (ICSSI) was held on June 7-9, 2022 at the National Academy of Sciences Building in Washington, D.C. The event brought together both producers and consumers of scientific research, including academics, experts from industry and government agencies, as well as policymakers, investors and administrators. With this broadly inclusive group, it is our goal to better inform scientific inquiry in a way that significantly improves its practical relevance for policies and communities writ large.
