An important message from NSF forwarded from Tom Janoski on SBE 2020: Future Research in the Social, Behavioral & Economic Sciences [email@example.com]
Background: NSF solicited and received 252social science proposals about the future of research in the social sciences over the next 10 years, one of which was submitted by Tom. Please peruse the reports in your discipline and think about how we can address the future of social science research at UK.
The message from NSF about the report and the Dec. 1 Webinar/Town Hall appears below.
Just a year ago, we stopped accepting SBE 2020 white papers. The papers were released to the public in February and now we have completed a report, Rebuilding the Mosaic, which briefly describes the process, some of the themes we identified, and the programmatic implications of what we learned. The report is available at: http://www.nsf.gov/sbe/sbe_2020/index.cfm, and we expect to host a webinar/town hall on December 1. The login details are below.
All of your papers contributed to our thinking about the future of research in the SBE sciences, and we continue to be amazed at and grateful for your participation. I hope that you will take a moment to read the report – all of the papers are listed in Appendix 5. For the foreseeable future, we also expect to maintain the website (http://www.nsf.gov/sbe/sbe_2020/index.cfm), where the papers can be individually found and downloaded, since the report cannot substitute for the many ideas that you have shared with us and with the American people.
Although I have written to you before to express my appreciation, one more time, let me say:
