Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $125,000)
In addition to finalizing the consensus report document, these additional funds would be used to create opportunities for widespread communication about and dissemination of the consensus report findings and recommendations.
Given the progress of the project thus far, only $50,000 in funds are necessary to support these dissemination and communication efforts. It is anticipated that this report will attract a significant amount of media and press attention as well as attention from all of the study sponsors' respective stakeholders and partners. Additional funds are necessary to ensure that
the study's conclusions and recommendations are broadly disseminated and that the
communications products produced by NAS are accessible to a wide variety of end-users.
Activities will include a range of briefings, presentations, events, and products across a diverse range of settings, modes and stakeholder communities. Examples of potential dissemination products include infographics, Congressional and/or agency briefings, research in brief reports,
presentations at academic and practitioner conferences and other activities as determined by the NAS communications team.
This project contains a research and/or development component, as defined in applicable law.
