Partnerships to strengthen and diversify researchers’ broader impacts activities

How does a researcher effectively plan and implement public engagement with science?

Broader impacts require substantial commitments by researchers to engage with the public. Many researchers are welcoming of support to develop high quality broader impacts plans. Innovative partnerships and collaborations can make the journey more palatable and result in truly collaborative and impactful public  engagement programs that may last a lifetime for the researcher and the community.

  • How can institutional partnerships assist researchers as they develop their 'impact identity' to develop and implement broader impacts plans?
  • What supports across institutions do researchers have to make the appropriate connections at the right stage of a project to allow for participatory and co-design practices?
  • What supports across institutions do community-based organizations have to make the appropriate connections at the right stage of a project to allow for participatory and co-design practices?

Our video snapshot features the connections and case studies of how this more comprehensive Broader Impacts Design process supports researchers’ participation in designing and implementing Broader Impacts plans.  A key aspect of the project is to research and understand the relationship between UW-Madison (WISCIENCE) and the public engagement with science programs at the Discovery Building (Morgridge Institute for Research, Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, WARF, and the Illuminating Discovery Hub).

What are the connections and processes of this inter-institutional partnership that are sustainable and bring about ideal broader impacts?
