The DOE Office of Science requires that all project proposals include an appendix which contains a Promoting Inclusive and Equitable Research (PIER) Plan that describes the activities and strategies that applicants will implement to promote diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in their research projects. Use the BNL PIER Plan Template (.docx) and the PIER Guidance document (.docx) to assist you in addressing PIER requirements for your proposal.
