COSEE SE can help
Whether you are preparing a broader impact plan for a proposal or looking to improve elements of your outreach activities.
You're not alone
Writing a broader impact section or planning an outreach event for communicating your research can be stressful. Partnering with professionals who have experience translating science and a pre-existing network with formal and informal education institutions can help.
