In December 2020, the IOG launched Government Science and Innovation in the New Normal (GSINN), a multi-year, collaborative research initiative designed to support medium-term planning for federal science and innovation departments and agencies, and begin an in-depth examination of the evolving relationship among science, innovation and society. From March 2021 to May 2021, the Institute on Governance hosted 10 workshops which employed Foresight Methodology. The first eight workshops each focused on a distinct theme of the GSINN initiative. The final two workshops explored how the pandemic impacted and may continue to impact the types of science federal public servants conduct. This document presents a summary of the 10 most common themes that arose across the 10 workshops. The themes are presented in decreasing order of frequency.
