Measuring Convergence in Science and Engineering: Proceedings of a Workshop
June 11, 2021
Measuring Convergence in Science and Engineering: Proceedings of a Workshop was released April 26, 2021. Free PDFs and printed reports are available here. Chaired by Barbara Entwistle (University of North Carolina), reported by Shadya Sanders, and sponsored by the National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics (NCSES), this proceedings summarizes the workshop presentations and discussions. The workshop, which was held virtually and livestreamed on October 22-23, 2020, was convened to help NCSES, a division of the National Science Foundation, set an agenda to inform its methodological research and better measure and assess the implications of convergence for the science and engineering workforce and enterprise. The workshop brought together scientists and researchers from multiple disciplines, along with experts in science policy, university administration, and other stakeholders to review and provide input on defining and measuring convergence and its impact on science and scientists.
