NSF 10 Big Ideas: Research Topics and Funding Opportunities
Monday, March 11, 2019, 12:10-1:10pm
Pleasantville, Miller 16 | NYC, Civic E319

In 2016, the National Science Foundation (NSF) unveiled a set of “Big Ideas,” 10 bold, long-term research and process ideas that identify areas for future investment at the frontiers of science and engineering. This session discusses three of these interdisciplinary initiatives and corresponding funding opportunities. 

Topics to be addressed will include Expanding the NSF INCLUDES National Network (transforming education and career pathways to help broaden participation in science and engineering), Growing Convergence Research (merging ideas, approaches, tools, and technologies from widely diverse fields of science and engineering to stimulate discovery and innovation, and Harnessing the Data Revolution(fundamental research in data science and engineering). If you are interested in these or any of the 10 Big Ideas, we hope you will attend this session.=

Interdisciplinary Conversations
The Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier
Thursday, March 28, 2019, 3:25-4:25pm
Pleasantville, Miller 16 | NYC , Civic Tower, 18th Floor, Boardrooms North & South

Artificial intelligence, automation of work and jobs, people working alongside machines, and changing models for work and work structures. These trends offer unparalleled opportunities, but also significant challenges. Please join us for a lively interdisciplinary conversation about the way people learn and adapt to technological change, creative and supportive workplaces and the intended potential of new technologies and the unintended consequences for workers and the well-being of society.

This venue is an opportunity to meet and talk with interested colleagues, for an intriguing hour or about potential collaborations in teaching and scholarship.

Corporate Environmental Performance and Reporting

The discussion will include a working paper and a working project on corporate environmental performance and reporting. Global environmental disasters caused by corporate malfeasance have raised the public’s consciousness for improvements in corporate environmental performance and reporting. The working paper finds that corporate environmental performance of a sample of large international firms is related to their legal origins and shareholder protections. The working project examines the timeliness of voluntary corporate responsibility/environmental reports among a sample of large US firms. Preliminary analysis suggests that firms release their reports with substantial reporting lags. Overall, the findings in these two projects suggest that regulations are needed to promote better corporate environmental performance and reporting.
