Hello Friends and Colleagues,

I want to make you all aware of the recent DCL on SBE’s repositioning and several upcoming opportunities for members of our research community to learn more about this effort. Please see below.


The social, behavioral, and economic (SBE) sciences have a tremendous impact on quality of life.  With increasingly rigorous methods and an increasingly diverse workforce, the SBE sciences are making transformative advances in many areas. At NSF, we are looking for ways to build on that progress.

With this goal in mind, the SBE Directorate is proud to announce a repositioning of some of its basic research programs, as described in this  Dear Colleague Letter.  

SBE is hosting a series of webinars and virtual office hours to present details about what the repositioning means for SBE research communities.
