When the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering, two D.C. based research organizations, were scoping out a region to pilot their national science ambassadors program, Pittsburgh rose to the top of the list. This was in large part due to the region's word-class leadership in energy and science and the top top-tier universities, institutions and talent that has historically defined the region. President of the National Academy of Sciences Dr. Ralph Cicerone and President of the National Academy of Engineering Dr. Charles Vest sit down at Phipps' Center for Sustainable Landscapes to unveil the ambassador program and discuss why Pittsburgh was chosen as its pilot region.
