Cambridge, MA – Former Secretary of Defense Ashton B. Carter will join the Harvard Kennedy School as the Belfer Professor of Technology and Global Affairs and Director of the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs. As Secretary of Defense, Carter, a physicist, became known for pushing the Pentagon to “think outside its five-sided box” in order to transform the way the military fought adversaries and strengthened alliances, managed its budget and talent, developed its technology, and more. He will now lead the Belfer Center’s programs and will focus his scholarship on the role of innovation and technology in addressing challenges at home and around the world.
Han Kristensen, Director, Nuclear Information Project at the Federation of American Scientists will present a seminar about the U.S. Nuclear Posture Review on Tuesday January 26, 2010 at 9:30am in the Belfer Center library.
All are welcome and invited to attend.
