Understanding Broader Impacts
Start Date: 3/23/2017Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 3/23/2017End Time: 1:30 PM
Event Description:
NSF requires that all proposals explicitly describe the “broader impacts” of proposed scientific research—the ways in which the research will benefit society and achieve specific educational outcomes. The quality of broader impacts statements are increasingly valued by reviewers and affect the competitiveness of proposals.

Do you feel daunted by the prospect of developing your broader impacts statement or by the reality of implementing your broader impacts if your project is funded? CU Science Discovery will give you an overview of what successful broader impacts look like, introduce you to a variety of resources for collaboration and implementation, and offer a chance to brainstorm with education and outreach professionals about developing broader impacts components that will complement and enhance your research program. Join us for a presentation and lunchtime networking opportunity focused on how you can work to: improve STEM education (K-12) and STEM educator development; increase public scientific literacy; and create dynamic partnerships with industry and other off-campus organizations.

Participants include: Chaitanya Baru, NSF’s senior advisor for Data Science in the Computer and Information Science and Engineering Directorate (CISE); Stacey Forsyth, director, CU Science Discovery; Alexandra Rose, Broader Impacts and Teen Science Café program manager, CU Science Discovery; Kathryn Penzkover, high school programs manager, CU Science Discovery; and Bryn Rees, director, Office of Technology Transfer
