Organizations that fund research are increasingly expecting researchers to communicate the broader, societal impact of their work. This entails explaining specifically how broader impacts activities will be meaningfully assessed and evaluated.  The Office of Strategic Research Initiatives has resources to support this work, and our evaluators can also provide assistance. This could entail help with articulating how grant-funded activities should have positive societal benefits that extend beyond the life of the grant and defining how the intended benefits will be measured.
