University of Nebraska-Lincoln faculty looking to strengthen their broader impacts activities are invited to a May 29 luncheon. The workshop is 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Prem S. Paul Research Center at Whittier School, Room 136. Space is limited for the first-come, first-seated event.

Broader impacts encompass the potential of research to benefit society and contribute to the achievement of desired societal outcomes. As the focus on broader impacts increases during grant proposal review, so does the expectation that projects are able to measure their success.

The Office of Research and Economic Development is teaming with the university’s Methodology and Evaluation Research Core Facility to host the free luncheon. Registration is required.

Mindy Anderson-Knott, MERC’s director of evaluation and development, will showcase examples of utilizing formative evaluation to improve program implementation and using outcome results to secure additional funding. The presentation will also give an overview of estimates for expected timelines and anticipated costs.

The workshop will be especially valuable to researchers developing July submissions to the National Science Foundation’s Faculty Early Career Development Program.

For more information, contact Tisha Mullen, director of proposal development, at 402-472-2894.
