Please join us for a virtual visit by program leadership of the National Science Foundation’s Directorate for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences (SBE). The SBE sciences focus on human behavior and social organizations and how social, economic, political, cultural, and environmental forces affect the lives of people from birth to old age and how people in turn shape those forces. This session will feature an overview of the SBE Directorate’s programs and priorities followed by break-out sessions with program directors for discussion of specific funding programs and best practices for successful applications.

SBE programs of interest include:

  • Accountable Institutions and Behavior
  • Cognitive Neuroscience
  • Economics
  • Human Networks and Data Science
  • Perception, Action & Cognition
  • Security and Preparedness
