Partnerships that Work with Tiffany Fleming and Elizabeth McDonald
This interactive workshop is intended for program managers, educators, and organizations interested in securing funding through partnerships and community engagement with research partners.
All researchers pursuing National Science Foundation (NSF) grants must include Broader Impacts work in their proposals. This work often has an education or outreach component, leading researchers to seek partnerships with schools or other community organizations. Often these partnerships can feel one-sided, if researchers do not really know what an organization offers, and do not provide a budget for doing the work.
Learn about how strengthen partnerships with researchers, be included in grant budgets, and align with grants that meet your mission and goals, too.
-Learn how funding opportunities through the National Science Foundation (NSF) can support researchers work and the work of your organization
-Gain tools and knowledge to effectively collaborate with researchers to develop public programming
-Examine case studies of successful community partnerships
-Develop skills to effectively advocate for your organizations needs in the partnership process
-Exchange strategies and best practices for successful partnerships with other groups in the community
