Webinar: 'Bringing Attention and Intention to Broader and Societal Impacts'
Increasingly, researchers are becoming more intentional about the impact that their research can have on society, beyond traditional disciplinary measures. In this online seminar presented by the Office of Societal Impact, we will introduce some of the distinct types of impact plans that federal funding agencies are now requiring in their solicitations and provide tips and tools for successfully addressing these elements in your proposal. We will also describe frameworks that researchers and institutions can use to document and describe the societal impact of their funded projects, including results from a pilot project conducted by the University of Arizona. Our special guest, Susan Renoe, will discuss the evolution and current state of broader impacts in the National Science Foundation and highlight the resources available through the NSF-funded Center for Advancing Research Impact in Society.
