"Our mission is to encourage the use of sound science in making public policy about important issues for which science and technology are major considerations. Our current program emphasizes issues in national security and the environment. [...] The Institute's accurate and impartial analyses are designed to help policy makers distinguish between opinion and scientific fact so that decisions on public policy issues can be based on solid, factual information, rather than opinion or unproven hypotheses. GMI carries out its mission through published reports, roundtables, workshops and collaboration with institutions that share our interest in basing public policy on scientific facts. A distinguishing characteristic of the Institute is the stature of its Board of Directors, which guides its program."
