LIFE Form System:

Level of Interest and Feedback Evaluation (LIFE) Forms are used at each NSF IUCRC Industry Advisory Board (IAB) Meeting. IAB members use these forms to indicate their level of interest in projects and provide additional feedback.

The online LIFE system allows centers to: Organize and display compiled industry interest ratings and feedback for each project presented at the meeting (anonymously to PIs, but not LIFE system administrators); and
Allow for PIs to respond to industry feedback (comments or questions).
You can view a LIFE Form system tutorial (.PPT) for more information.
