Strengthening the impact of your Arctic research

February 28, 12:00-1:30 in the Bangor Room at the Union

The National Science Foundation, NASA, and other large funding agencies have put an increasing emphasis on Broader Impacts in recent years. Yet researchers sometimes struggle with how to connect their intellectual goals to substantive public engagement and other non-research activities. The University of Maine has many programs on campus that partner with researchers, as well as broad expertise on how to develop new programs. For this event, we will host a panel of Laura Millay (Maine Center for Research in STEM Education), Linda Silka (Senator George J. Mitchell Center for Sustainability Solutions), and Greg Kranich (Cooperative Extension) to discuss existing programs and characteristics of successful research-education-outreach partnerships. In addition to what our panelists bring, we look forward to a wider discussion about what UMaine does and can do to foster more activity in support of broader impacts. Please bring your ideas and encourage students to attend!
