This table maps URSSI activities to the three portions of URSSI’s intended impact. Activities are preceded by a letter to indicate what area of URSSI they are from (C = community and outreach, E = education and training, I = incubator, P = policy), and in the impact cells, X indicates a designed primary impact on an activity, and y indicates a designed secondary impact.
