On 24 June 2015, from 2-3PM, AAAS will host a webinar for human rights organizations seeking to use their On-Call Scientists on human rights projects. During the webinar, participants will learn about the ways human rights organizations are working with experts to augment their research, monitoring, and reporting. Specific scientific knowledge can be useful in reviewing technical reports, answering questions about evidence or methodology, and assisting in the design of a survey. Scientists, engineers, and clinicians can also be valuable in analyzing research findings, and in developing or adapting new technologies to meet the specific needs of a human rights organization. AAAS will also explain the process for requesting a volunteer through On-Call Scientists and share tips for working with scientific experts. This would be a great opportunity for Working Group Members to expand their knowledge in a number of technical and scientific areas.
