The National Science Foundation considers two criteria in their review of proposals: intellectual merit and broader impacts (BI). Broader impacts relate to how the proposed research will “benefit society or advance desired societal outcomes” and is increasingly used as the differentiator between which excellent proposals to fund or not.  

The Training Team from the NSF-supported Advancing Research Impact in Society (ARIS) organization will conduct five interactive virtual workshops on Friday, Feb. 3, 17 and Friday, March 3, 17, and 31 from 9 a.m.-11 a.m.

Session 4: BI Partnerships

Friday, March 17 @ 9 a.m.-11 a.m.

Developing and implementing successful broader impacts activities is often dependent on identifying the right BI partner(s) and establishing a productive collaboration. But, where do you go to find a good BI partner? What are the elements of a successful partnership? And, how can you ensure that the relationship is mutually beneficial for both members of the partnership? These and other questions will be explored in this interactive session.

Register here.
