CREATING AWARENESS: Receiving recognition may include awards, general awareness, or acceptance of a concept or findings by scientific community or policy makers, generating new discussion.

CATALYZING ACTION: Catalyzing action may include partnerships and collaborations, technology creation, congressional hearings or bills, or introduction in practice.
