OBSSR seeks input for FY 2016-2020 strategic plan

The NIH’s Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) is in the process of establishing core scientific and policy priorities for their five year strategic plan. Because behavioral and social sciences (BSSR) research is broad in scope, and has seen rapid changes, emerging questions and concerns have come to light and they are seeking input on how to most effectively address these challenges. Input can comprise the current state of social and behavioral science which covers a wide range of disciplines including neuroscience, psychology, sociology, and anthropology, among others. OBSSR also wants to hear about critical challenges in the behavioral and social sciences that currently hinder scientific advancement as well as the areas of research that hold the most promise in achieving the OBSSR and NIH missions. The OBSSR FY 2016-2020 Strategic Plan will be shaped by your input.

Please submit responses by November 20, 2015 to OBSSRStrategicPlan@mail.nih.gov.
