Abstract:

The U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI) is the Army’s lead agency responsible for addressing personnel, organization, training, and leader development issues through conducting research and development in the behavioral and social sciences. ARI supports the mission to improve Army readiness and performance through basic research, applied research, and advanced technology development. The Basic Research program is managed within the Foundational Science Research Unit of ARI and focuses on creating new knowledge and concepts in support of Army needs through the conduct of foundational research (6.1) in high-risk, high-reward areas. The Basic Research program is organized into five research portfolios: Personnel Testing and Performance, Leader Development, Learning in Formal and Informal Environments, Organizational Effectiveness, and Culture. This presentation will be an overview of the intramural and extramural basic research at ARI with emphasis on the Personnel Testing and Performance portfolio.
