The National Science Foundation (NSF) announces the Fall 2017 meeting of the Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences (SBE) Advisory Committee. The SBE Committee meets twice yearly to provide advice, recommendations, and oversight to the NSF concerning support for research, education, and human resources. Members represent a cross section of social, behavioral, and economic sciences and many different sub-disciplines within these fields, including industry. In addition, the committee is diverse in terms of gender, geographic locations, and under-represented minorities.
Duties of the SBE Committee include:
- Review and advise on the impact of programs in the disciplines and fields encompassed by the Directorate,
- Provide oversight of overall program management and performance, and
- Advise as to the impact of overall NSF-wide policies on the SBE scientific community.
