About New Horizons in Science

The Council's major educational program, the annual New Horizons in Science briefing, now in its 52nd year, is designed to give science writers a leg up on their future. Each year 20 or more top-rank researchers are invited to report on seminal advances in a wide array of scientific disciplines. The intent is to provide writers the background and perspective necessary to understand and interpret innovative research and its potential societal impact months (sometimes years) before they make headlines.
