Phipps, David; Jensen, Krista E.; Johnny, Michael; Poetz, Anneliese – Journal of Research Administration, 2016
Each application to the National Science Foundation (NSF) must contain a Broader Impact (BI) strategy. Similarly, grant applications for most research funders in Canada and the UK require strategies to support the translation of research into impacts on society; however, the guidance provided to researchers is too general to inform the specific…
