What do the following research programs have in common?This seems to be focused specifically on the "Broader Impact" requirement in National Science Foundation grants. I have never received a solicitation like this before. Anyone else out there get anything like this? What do people think? I think it is possibly a good thing that some companies are thinking there is a niche for them in Broader Impact and outreach assistance.
1. Lost Ladybug Cornell (Cornell University, NY)
2. Museum of the Earth (Ithaca, NY)
3. Crossing Boundaries (Hobart and William Smith Colleges, NY)
4. High School Polar Outreach Project (Charleston, SC)
5. Go Inquire Project (George Mason University, VA)
6. Project Wetkids (University of Southern Mississippi)
Answer: They decided to hire Next Interactives to develop a highly engaging research website to help fulfill their Broader Impact and Outreach requirements.

You should consider making some extra cash on the side by blogging for other's broader impacts...ReplyDelete
You too - we could create the "Broader Impact Blog Network"ReplyDelete

I've received the third email now from nextinteractives.com. I guess that means I need outreach 3x as much as you (which is probably an understatement ;-)ReplyDelete
For me this proves that "wherever there's a niche to make a living, life will find it" :)
