A Conversation with Ed Hackett
By Ed Hackett
National Science Foundation
ASU School of Human Evolution and Social Change
October 25, 2007

Abstract: Ed Hackett divides his time between faculty responsibilities in SHESC and being the Director of the Division of Social and Economic Sciences at NSF. Currently, the NSF is fostering a new iniative to encourage researchers in the social and behavioral sciences who are seeking to develop and utilize new technologies for research and analysis. The goal is to “increase the resolution and integration of data over an appropriate time- course; to devise analytic and modeling capabilities, to develop more powerful theories, and to promote institutions that foster collaboration among and beyond the social and behavioral sciences.“ Ed will discuss this new focus at NSF and how complexity scientists can be responsive to it. This Discussion is critical for everyone who is seeking funding for ambitious research programs in the study of dynamic and complex social systems.
