Welcome to the Davis Science Policy and Communication Group (SPCG) Website!  We are a group of early career scientists at UC Davis interested in sharing our research with diverse audiences. The Science Policy and Communication Group is a project of the UC Davis Institute for Food and Agricultural Literacy (IFAL) and is also associated with the Communication, Literacy, and Education for Agricultural Research (CLEAR) program. We collaborate and interact closely with other CLEAR members and science communicators at UC Berkeley and UC San Diego.

 Our Mission:

  • To provide science-based, curated information on food and agriculture to consumers, policy makers, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), journalists and other public stakeholders through outreach activities and accessible media platforms (videos, blogs, Twitter, etc.)
  • To help faculty, staff, and trainees acquire science communication skills to engage in public discourse on the  social, economic, biological, environmental and ethical aspects of food and agricultural technologies and policies
