ACE and NHEERL have developed a set of activities intended to build capacity in the social sciences and connections with social science resources both within and outside of the Agency. The activities include: 1) conduct and evaluation of interdisciplinary research which incorporates social science disciplines; 2) communication of social science theories, methods, models, and tools to a broad community of environmental sciences; 3) facilitation of interdisciplinary social and environmental science teams, including development of interdisciplinary conceptual models, crossing disciplinary language barriers, developing cross-training programs, and developing integrated budgets and timelines; 4) development of internal and external networks of social science expertise to provide a resource for interdisciplinary problem formulation and research planning; 5) coordinating with EPA information technology experts to assess systems for collecting and sharing data across interdisciplinary teams; 6) synthesizing results from interdisciplinary research to translate research into actionable information which can inform decision-making; 7) engaging with stakeholder groups to deliver actionable research through focused outreach activities.
