The Science of Science Communication III: Inspiring Novel Collaborations and Building Capacity

Call for Proposals

In December 2016, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine published a new consensus study report, Communicating Science Effectively: A Research Agenda. Now, with support from the Rita Allen Foundation, the National Academy of Sciences is pleased to offer two awards of $37,500 each to bring the report’s vision for robust science communication research closer to fruition. These awards will support the formation and development of partnerships of science communication researchers and practitioners and facilitate their efforts to plan collaborative projects that pursue shared research interests aligned with the report. Those receiving awards will present details about their collaborations at a special session of the Arthur M. Sackler Colloquium on the Science of Science Communication III to be held on November 16-17, 2017. To apply for these awards, researchers and practitioners who have agreed to work in partnership should submit a proposal by June 1, 2017. Click here for proposal submission details.

If you are applying to the call for proposals and would like to attend the Colloquium whether or not you win, we encourage you to register early since previous Colloquia have sold out.  If you win, we will reimburse your registration fee.
