The seminal strategic planning workshop will guide future activities on AHGSET and international cooperation in basic research for energy. The AHGSET workshop will be complemented by a conference to be held in March 2006 by the OECD's Global Science Forum. The GSF will further develop and expand the promising opportunities in science, simultaneously preparing a fuller perspective on the energy and economic policy implications of strengthening science.
The focus of the workshop will extend from technical issues in S&T to institutional factors that can affect long-term success. Specifically, the workshop will seek to identify and challenge the science community with the critical energy technology barriers, identify priority opportunities for broad-based or crosscutting science "push" and develop actionable strategies for research integration, innovation and collaborations.
