Cultivating Broader Impact Programs: Developing and Executing a Successful Program for Current and Future Grants

The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) receives approximately 50,000 research proposals each year, of which approximately 11,000 are funded. The NSF employs the two National Science Board approved merit review criteria to determine which research has the greatest potential to promote the progress of science: Intellectual Merit and Broader Impacts. While most researchers know what is meant by intellectual merit, experience shows that many have a less than clear understanding of the meaning of broader impacts. The workshop will provide perspectives from NSF and NSF supported investigators and offer tools, suggestions, personal experiences and best practices for developing and executing successful outreach and training programs. All participants are welcome to attend.
