NSF Solicitation: Build and Broaden 2.0 (B2 2.0) Enhancing Social, Behavioral and Economic Science Research and Capacity at Minority-Serving Institutions

DESCRIPTION

The Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE) supports research in many areas associated with our evolving world, including fundamental research on human behavior and surrounding social, economic, and natural environments. Research supported in SBE advances the understanding of people, social organizations and society in a changing world where there are new opportunities for human interconnectedness as well as challenges that affect the ability to live healthy and productive lives.

The purpose of the Build and Broaden 2.0 (B2 2.0) program is to encourage research collaborations between scholars at minority-serving institutions (MSIs) and scholars in other institutions or organizations. Growing the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workforce is a national priority. National forecasts of the impending shortage of science and engineering skills and essential research workforce underscore a need to expand opportunities to participate in STEM research (President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, 2012) (Link to 2012 report). NSF has taken steps to expand participation by focusing on research communities that are not well-represented in the federal research system. Through these steps, NSF is working to expand the volume and increasing the diversity, interconnectedness, and effectiveness of the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce.
