NSF Broader Impacts: Fostering Connections to Expand the Societal Benefits of Basic Research

Friday10/162:00 pm - 3:00 pm

From its broader impacts funding category to its support of Advancing Research Impact on Society (ARIS), the National Science Foundation has increasingly prioritized situating its funded research in terms of its impact in improving large systemic societal problems. How is this funding fostering the participation of interdisciplinary individuals and institutions in the projects it supports? Where are they going next in reaching beyond STEM for expertise in its funded projects?

Join us for a special #WiSciFest edition of WARF Essential Topics featuring Dr. Fleming Crim, NSF’s chief operating officer. Don’t miss the discussion as he addresses the evolving culture at NSF to better and more broadly impact society and address creative solutions to underlying problems, and what that can mean for the greater scientific community.
