A wide-ranging collection of science expert opinions in one accessible place.
Despite greater production of information than ever before, much of it is either hidden behind a pay-wall, can be challenging to understand or doesn’t represent a balance of diverse viewpoints. SciOPS solves this by bringing transparency and accessibility to a variety of scientific events and issues.
SciOPS conducts brief, frequent, rapidly deployed surveys to a panel of thousands of science and technology experts in universities, industry and government. Responses are then quickly displayed through simple, shareable graphics.
SciOPS provides a place where everyone – regardless of background knowledge or expertise – can receive informed expert input on scientific discoveries, trending issues, and emerging technologies.
