The Azimuth Project
Program in Science, Technology, and Environmental Policy

STEP is the Program in Science, Technology, and Environmental Policy at Princeton University. From their homepage:

In addition to providing a systematic introduction to the field of policy analysis, the goal of the STEP program is to develop a deeper understanding of:

  • The nature of scientific, technological and environmental problems and opportunities;
  • The specialized methods used for analyzing scientific, technological and environmental issues;
  • The dynamics of science and technology in relation to national and international institutions and organizations.

Increasing numbers of students in the School generally, and in the STEP program in particular, have a primary interest in environmental science and technology policy, including global climate change, air pollution, negotiated environmental accords, biodiversity, environmental economics, environmental justice, and the connection between the environment and development. Research in these areas and others such as biotechnology and nuclear-weapons policy is facilitated by the Program’s ties with the Princeton Environmental Institute, the Departments of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Molecular Biology, and Geosciences, the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, the Program on Science & Global Security, and the Office of Population Research.
