NCC Provides Transcription for Jefferson Science Fellows Distinguished Lecture Series
NCC was pleased to provide verbatim transcription service for the Department of State’s Jefferson Science Fellows Distinguished Lecture Series. Our Multimedia and Production Solutions team generated high-quality transcripts for the nine most recent lectures, which took place between June 2012 and April 2013, and will soon be made available on the Department of State’s website.
The lectures were given by professors from universities across the country and covered subjects including farming, food science, and global epidemics. The series is sponsored by the U.S. Agency for International Development’s (USAID, an NCC client organization) Office of Science and Technology, the Science and Technology Adviser to the Secretary (STAS), and the Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs (OES).
The Jefferson Science Fellowship program began in 2003 as an initiative of the STAS to “provide additional opportunities for engaging the American academic science and engineering communities in U.S. foreign policy.” Jefferson Science Fellows are tenured faculty members in scientific fields at U.S. universities who work at the Department of State or the USAID for one year, and are available as consultants after returning to their academic careers.
We are glad to continually enhance accessibility for the Jefferson Science Fellows Lecture Series, and in turn create a better experience for the Department of State’s staff and visitors.
