Johannes W. Vieweg, M.D., FACS, speaks at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C.

Johannes W. Vieweg, M.D., FACS, founding dean of NSU’s College of Allopathic Medicine, spoke about “Reengineering Science and Technology Policy to Address 21st Century Challenges” at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C., on February 25, 2016. Vieweg is a Jefferson Science Fellow at the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs. The discussion was part of the Jefferson Science Fellows Distinguished Lecture Series hosted by Science & Technology Adviser to the Secretary of State, the Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental & Scientific Affairs, and the USAID Global Development Lab.

In his speech, Vieweg postulated the future of science and technology (S&T) using multiple models that have underpinned historical S&T development. He recommended that scientists and researchers carefully evaluate the relationship between research and the desired societal impact.

As a 2015/2016 Jefferson Science Fellow, Vieweg serves as a senior science and technology (S&T) advisor in EAP/TC. He primarily focuses on the implementation of S&T agreements between the U.S. Department of State and Taiwan authorities. He frequently participates in meetings with U.S. and Taiwan representatives as well as with the scientific communities to advance partnerships and promote the role of S&T in the development of foreign policy for the United States of America.
