DefendingScience.org

Came across DefendingScience.org, the website for the Project on Scientific Knowledge and Public Policy.  From the "about us" page:

The Project on Scientific Knowledge and Public Policy examines the nature of science and how it is used and misused in government decision-making and legal proceedings. Through empirical research, conversations among scholars, and publications, SKAPP aims to enhance understanding of how knowledge is generated and interpreted. SKAPP promotes transparent decision-making, based on the best available science, to protect public health.

The planning committee (on the same page), rather interestingly, has no JDs.
