Our future will be in significant part determined by public policy decisions by companies and government about science and technology, yet few know how this system works-it is truly a "black box" for most. Meanwhile, we increasingly understand that science- and technology-based innovation is deeply connected to society's economic growth and its corresponding ability to generate societal wellbeing and to solve big societal challenges like climate change or the need for quality jobs. So the public importance of science is growing.
