The Bridge

The Bridge publishes opinion and analysis on engineering research, education, and practice; science and technology policy; and the roles of engineering and technology in society. The intent is to stimulate debate and dialogue within the NAE membership and the broader outside community of policymakers, educators, business leaders and other interested citizens.

The Bridge relies on its editor, a network of ad hoc advisors and NAE staff to identify potential paper topics and authors and to review and select articles ultimately published in the magazine. The Bridge has a quarterly distribution of approximately 6,500, including NAE members, members of Congress, libraries, universities, and interested individuals.
