John Holdren, President Barack Obama's science adviser for eight years, will give a talk at the University of Colorado on Nov. 16 that will be focused on the past and future of U.S. science and technology policy.
Holdren is the longest serving science adviser to any president and was a key member of Obama's senior staff, according to a news release. Holdren devoted his attention to issues such as energy, environment, nuclear proliferation and STEM education, as well as the nation's space exploration portfolio.
The event is free and open to the public, and is set for 5 to 6 p.m. at CU's Glenn Miller Ballroom, and will include a question and answer session.
Holdren's talk is the inaugural event of the CU Boulder Engineering Dean's Speaker Series launched by Bobby Braun, who became dean of CU's College of Engineering and Applied Science in January.
Those attending are asked to RSVP to the Dean's Speaker Series site.
