Abstract: Academic researchers often labor for years on research without knowing whether and how it will affect the world. Lee describes ScAAN’s work with nonprofits as “a way to stay sane in graduate school … to do something now and see the effects of your work.” A main barrier to this sort of collaboration is that many scientists don’t know how to get in touch with nonprofits that could use their skills. But another new group is working to address this issue. This past February, Adam Seth Levine of Cornell University, Jake Bowers of the University of Illinois, and Donald Green of Columbia University launched the site Research4Impact to facilitate such connections. The website enables researchers as well as nonprofit and government staff to enter profiles and connect with collaborators. It currently has more than 350 members.
