Innovation Working Groups

IWGs support multi-day working group activities that are modeled after those held at the highly successful NSF-funded National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS). An IWG supports 8-12 scientists or educators to work collaboratively on complex and challenging issues through integration and synthesis of data, information, and knowledge. At least one IWG each year will focus on education, communication and outreach, or diversity. Anticipated outcomes of the IWGs include synthesis papers and proposals that target NSF cross-cutting programs.
