EAGER: Workshop on Shared Infrastructure for the Social and Behavioral Sciences

a PSC Research Project [ARCHIVE DISPLAY]

Investigator:   Robert M. Groves

The proposal describes a workshop to be mounted in Spring of 2009 to address the shared infrastructure needs of the Social and Behavioral Sciences. This workshop will address the fundamental issue: What social scientific questions of great import to human understanding cannot now be answered because we do not have the needed infrastructure in terms of data and methods to answer them, and how can we build the needed infrastructure? The participants in this workshop will be chosen to represent researchers at the cutting-edge of individual lines of inquiry. The participant’s viewpoints should involve both new, bold initiatives as well as key needed features to broad well established thinking about current SBE domains. The product of this workshop will be a listing of key questions that could be answered with new infrastructure, explicated in a language that can be understood across the SBE subgroups

Funding Period: 03/01/2009 to 04/30/2010
