ATE Central regularly connects with the community to better understand the impacts and challenges of being an ATE grantee, and to ensure that the services and tools created as part of ATE Central are useful to ATE projects and centers. In response to surveys and interviews in which PIs named sustainability as their number one challenge and the number one area they'd like support in, ATE Central is conducting a series of sustainability workshops and webinars over the next four years.
This month, please join Nancy Maron, Program Director of Sustainability and Scholarly Communications at Ithaka S&R (sr.ithaka.org), and Rachael Bower, Director and PI of ATE Central (atecentral.net), for a kick off webinar that provides an overview of sustainability issues of interest to ATE projects and centers. Key topics include the importance of defining what sustainability means in relation to your specific project or center deliverables and goals, how understanding your audience relates to sustainability planning, and why measuring the impact of what you're doing is critical to the process.
