Contact and About


The Broader Impacts Design (BID) Team is an National Science Foundation (NSF) funded (DRL AWARD #1610693), multi-institutional project that focuses on developing tools and materials to help researchers strengthen their broader impact activities for grants. By supporting these scientists, we hope that they will recognize the positive impacts their work has on individuals and society at large while doing something that is meaningful to them. This is especially important since scientists who submit proposals and the people who review them often focus on different components of the Broader Impacts section.
