Proposals Requested for Cooperative Agreement to Train Healthcare Providers

EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs is soliciting applications from eligible parties to manage a cooperative agreement to help educate the medical community on how to recognize and treat pesticide-related health conditions.

Webinar: Project Reporting and Writing Impacts: Who Cares? You Should!

However, the statement does hold true for poorly written reports. A poorly written report is not only a waste of time, it also provides no value to anyone. Conversely, a well written report can benefit the individual reporting on their project and anyone else that might have a need for the information. That includes administrators that want to show the productivity of their organization or someone trying to justify the expenditure of funds. How you write an impact statement is completely different from communicating scientific results. Knowing your potential audience and how to reach them in understandable language is crucial to your success. Well communicated outcomes raise the profile of the scientist and can help show the value of the research to non-scientific audiences.
