Title: Policy Implications for Government, Academia, and Industry Partnerships
Author(s): Sallie Keller*+

Address: 1899 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC, 20006,
Keywords: Partnerships ; Policy ; Leadership

Government, academia, and industry -- these are the ingredients that must come together to support the growing complexity of today's global challenges, ranging from international security to space exploration. Much of our success will be linked to our ability, as statistical scientists, to put our work into a decision context for policy makers, including industrial leaders, the individuals who shape the agenda for the world within which we live. This will require working with interdisciplinary teams and creating public - private partnerships. These partnerships are important because it is impossible for a single individual or discipline to have enough knowledge or a single organization to have enough resources to solve many of today's vexing problems, e.g., personalized medicine, social impacts of global climate change, clean energy and water for developing countries. This talk will focus on the growing expectations facing statistical sciences and how we, as statisticians, must take responsibility and leadership in building collaborations and partnerships that will guarantee scientific excellence is communicated to and adopted by key decision makers.
