Title: SBE 2020: The Impact of the Empirical Implications of Theoretical Models (EITM) in the Social, Behavioral & Economics Sciences
Lead Author: Granato, Jim
Abstract: On October 29, 2009, the Political Science Program of the National Science Foundation NSF) convened a Workshop (SES-0956812) to evaluate the progress that the Empirical Implications of Theoretical Models (EITM) initiative  the program to unify formal and empirical analysis  had made since it was first introduced in 2002. More importantly, given that funding for all EITM initiatives end in the summer of 2010 it was deemed appropriate to determine whether to make EITM a continuing focus of the Political Science Program at NSF  and to consider whether to extend the initiative to other social science disciplines. The interdisciplinary Workshop participants found the EITM initiative to be one of the best things NSF has done and that it has been money well spent. They unanimously agreed that the EITM initiative should continue within political science but also expand to other social science disciplines. In their commentaries, Workshop participants identified the following achievements of the EITM initiative and its goals for the upcoming years. A copy of the 2010 report can be found at the following: (http://www.uh.edu/hcpp/EITMWorkshopREPORTFINAL.pdf). In this white paper we highlight the EITM motivation, training and integration challenges, and future initiatives suitable for transforming the social sciences by 2020.
