Meeting 2022 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition
Symposium Moving Forward from a Pandemic: How the Field of Materials Science Has Adapted (2022 Student-led Symposium)
Presentation Title NOW ON DEMAND ONLY: COVID-19 Impacts on Policy and Funding in Materials Engineering - A Perspective from the National Science Foundation
Author(s) Alexis C. Lewis
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Alexis C. Lewis
Abstract Scope The rapid changes in research, teaching, and collaboration approaches brought forth by the COVID-19 pandemic have caused numerous institutions and agencies to rethink policies and programs. In addition to efforts to provide support for current awardees, the Engineering Directorate of the National Science Foundation has focused on those groups who have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic. A number of new programs have been launched with the aim of addressing potential gaps in research funding opportunities, and improving equity in the review and funding process. Recent opportunities for early and mid-career faculty will be discussed, as well as those focused on promoting research collaboration across institutions. In addition, a new approach to understanding and mitigating bias in the review process will be described. Efforts are ongoing to understand and mitigate the impacts of the pandemic on Engineering students in particular, and audience input is sought in this forum.
