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.
Session topics include: BI 101; Broadening Participation; NSF CAREER; BI Partners; BI Identity; and Evaluating BI.
Workshops will take place on Friday Feb. 11, 25; March 11, 25; and April 8 from 9-11am.
