Sharing research results with the public, government officials, educators or other audiences is crucial in this competitive funding climate.

“We need to be writing for Congress and the public. Scientists want their stories in the press, but complain when they are misquoted. You won't get the support you need if others don't understand what you're doing.” 

~Ruth Kirschstein, Frmr NIH Dir.
Funding agencies are increasingly requiring the scientific community to demonstrate the impact of their work not just on their field, but also on the public, whose tax dollars help to fund research. Yet few academic or research organizations have the time or staff to generate the high quality, impactful outreach materials that they are being asked to produce. Moreover, organizations like the NSF are hiring people like me: Experts in ISE program development and evaluation so they can spot good outreach plans when they read about them in grant proposals. Science for Society will help you devise a solid outreach and evaluation plan that will set you apart from your competition.
