Future Directions in Social Science

By George Loewenstein, Kathleen Musante, and Joshua A. Tucker

The Future Directions Workshop series, sponsored by the Basic Research Office in the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering, seeks to examine emerging research areas that-in the natural and formal sciences-are most likely to transform future technology capabilities and-in the social sciences-innovatively inform about how the social world works.


The report is the product of a workshop held on April 11-12, 2019 at the Basic Research Innovation Collaboration Center in Arlington, VA on the future of problem-based interdisciplinary social science research. It is intended as a resource to the Science and Technology community, including the broader federal funding community, federal laboratories, domestic industrial base, and academia.
