About the series
As a result of greater emphasis placed on broader impacts by the U.S. Congress, the National Science Board (NSB), and the National Science Foundation (NSF), a national community of practice has emerged to provide high-quality broader impacts (BI) support for researchers submitting proposals to the NSF. The community is meeting in Arlington, Va., at the Westin Arlington Gateway April 16-18, 2014 to:
- bring BI professionals together to share best practices, ideas, and challenges;
- set potential courses for the future of BI infrastructure support; and
- increase interaction between NSF and the BI community.
Speakers include NSF Director France Córdova, NSB member and Chief Executive Officer of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and Executive Publisher of the journal Science Alan Leshner, Chancellor Nancy Cantor of Rutgers University-Newark, President Freeman Hrabwoski III of the University of Maryland Baltimore County, NSF personnel, and members of the BI community.
