About the event

One of the world’s leading nuclear physicists, D. Allan Bromley was born in Westmeath, Ontario, in 1926 and held degrees from Queen’s University and the University of Rochester. Dr. Bromley sat on President Reagan’s White House Science Council and was the first person to hold the Cabinet-level rank of Assistant to the President for Science and Technology from 1989 to 1993, a position he held during the administration of George H.W. Bush. Dr. Bromley died in 2005.

Founded by the late Dr. John de la Mothe, a Canada Research Chair and Professor at the University of Ottawa, the Bromley Memorial is now organized by the University of Ottawa ISSP and the George Washington University IISTP, providing graduate students from uOttawa with the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with senior science and technology (S&T) policy advisors from various countries, sectors and levels of government in Washington D.C. and in Ottawa.
