Future Research in the Social, Behavioral & Economic Sciences

From the National Science Foundation:

The Directorate for the Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences of the National Science Foundation (NSF/SBE) seeks to frame innovative research for the year 2020 and beyond that enhances fundamental knowledge and benefits society in many ways. As a first step in engaging its community, NSF/SBE invited individuals and groups to contribute white papers in which we asked authors to outline pivotal questions that are both foundational and transformative – foundational because they reflect deep issues that engage fundamental assumptions behind disciplinary research traditions and transformative because they seek to leverage current findings to unlock new cycles of research.

The report, Rebuilding the Mosaic (October 2011), compiled out of 252 unique white papers submitted by experts in the field, sets forth major ideas, cross-cutting themes, and implications for the directorate’s programs.
