programs and changing
programmatic research needs


Provides a consistent and
common message


Builds the fundamental research
community around BER science


Provides transparency and
accountability


Provides information to inspire
the next generation of scientists;

BER Overview

Comprehensive communication package


Cross
-
disciplinary inputs and distribution


Broad inputs ensure product credibility


Broad dissemination increases awareness


Multiple products based on audience needs


Content is often “repurposed” after initial distribution
to increase economies of scale


In its lifetime, the information output from a single
workshop may result in the generation of report(s),
FOAs, websites, image galleries, brochures,
PowerPoint slides, and educational tools


Multiple distribution platforms
