NABI Framework Working Group

The National Alliance for Broader Impacts (NABI) is comprised of over 190 institutions, companies, colleges, and organizations across the nation. To ensure the success of NABI. NABI has formed an Advisory Board, a Steering Committee, and hired a Project Coordinator. NABI utilizes a Summit Planning Committee to organize the National Summits. The goal of NABI is to create a community of practice that fosters the development of sustainable and scalable institutional capacity and engagement in the broader impacts of STEM research activity.

On April 15, 2015 a NABI Working Group was organized. This NABI Working Group is the first working group of its kind to begin to develop a guiding document for Agency Broader Impacts (BI) criterion. The purpose of this document will be to assist program managers, proposal reviewers, and review panels in evaluating BI components of Agency proposals. This guiding document should begin to normalize the way review panels evaluate and rate proposed BI plans. This guiding document that was released on 12/08/2015 is called:

The Broader Impacts Guiding Principles and Questions for National Science Foundation Proposals.
