Build and Broaden 3.0 (B2 3.0) Enhancing Social, Behavioral and Economic Science Research and Capaci

When:  Mar 1, 2022 from 09:00 AM to 05:00 PM (ET)
Associated with  NSF INCLUDES National Network
Build and Broaden 3.0 (B2 3.0) supports fundamental research at minority-serving institutions (MSIs) and encourages research collaborations with scholars at MSIs. Growing the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workforce is a national priority. National forecasts of the impending shortage of science and engineering skills and essential research workforce underscore a need to expand opportunities to participate in STEM research (President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, 2012) (Link to 2012 report). NSF has taken steps to expand participation by focusing on research communities that are not well-represented in the federal research system. Through these steps, NSF is working to expand the volume and increasing the diversity, interconnectedness, and effectiveness of the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce.
