SEARCH Science Steering Committee (SSC) - Agency Meeting
13­-15 February 2012
Four Points by Sheraton Hotel
1201 K Street N.W.
Washington, D.C.

See a brief summary of the meeting at:

Over the last several months, the SEARCH SSC, with input from SEARCH panels and agency representatives, has developed a new SEARCH vision/mission statement and draft 5-year science goals. The new vision, mission, and goals will provide clarity and focus to the SEARCH program.

The goal of the SEARCH meeting in February was for the SSC and agencies to translate the vision and 5-year science goals into action.

The desired outcomes of the meeting were:

  1. Agreement on final 5-year science goals that align with agency missions and meet pressing scientific priorities.
  2. Agreement on a small set of initial pilot projects to implement portions of the 5-year goals.
  3. Agreement on an overall implementation strategy for SEARCH, which will be developed into a detailed implementation plan after the meeting.
