Expert Sources

With a wealth of universities and research institutions, Pittsburgh has copious experts on a variety of environmental topics.  The expert sources listed here are by no means complete (and will continue to become more robust). 

  • Nearly 40 Science Ambassadors are connected through a Pittsburgh-based program wherein dozens of research experts are connected to community stakeholders to inform community decision-making on energy-related issues.  Formerly an activity of the National Academy of Sciences and National Academy of Engineering, this program helps leverage local science and engineering innovators in the service of the community.
  • RAND Corporation’s Pittsburgh office performs research and analysis on local, national, and international topics ranging from child health and well-being, national security, the structure of Pittsburgh Public Schools, sustainability, growth, development, and regional government and infrastructure.
