Researchers are more effective in accomplishing the intended societal impacts of their research when they have taken the time to consider their short- and long-term research impact goals. Come to this hands-on workshop to develop your impact identity, goals, and pathways for achieving societal impacts for your next funded project and throughout your career. By considering their research impact goals and how to achieve them, participants will be better prepared to write compelling broader impacts statements for their next proposal.
