Strategies
Overview
Harvard University is the fiscal sponsor of the Science Policy Exchange, a collaboration among academic institutions and researchers who use scientific analysis to inform policy debates. Through this supplemental grant, the Science Policy Exchange will continue to manage a second phase of research to quantify the health, environmental, and economic benefits of a new Environmental Protection Agency regulation to limit global warming pollution from existing power plants in the United States. The project includes a communications component to ensure the results reach priority audiences in key states. Communicating scientifically proven benefits of the new rule will help educate governors, state regulators, and other key state decision makers, and build support for a stronger and more effective national standard.

Grants to this Grantee
for a project on cybersecurity and using data for public good at the Berkman Klein Center  
This grant to the Berkman Klein Center at Harvard University will support its ongoing engagement of top-level practitioners from the federal government, business, academia, and civil society with diverse perspectives on cyber surveillance and privacy issues in rethinking the role of the state in promoting cybersecurity. Building on its work from the past four years, the center will continue contributing to the field by (a) continuing to convene a diverse group of people to rethink the role of the foreign intelligence community in promoting cybersecurity and (b) continuing to develop a forum for state attorneys general to discuss law and technology issues.
for a community of practice to understand the systemic changes needed for deeper learning at scale  
The Deeper Learning Dozen project is housed at the Harvard University Graduate School of Education. The project creates a community of practice formed by 12 superintendents and their team members, all of whom are committed to making the changes necessary so that all young people and adults equitably experience deeper learning. The work will result in an understanding of how to create the changes in systems, policies, practices, roles, beliefs, and assumptions that will lead to the impact at scale.
