Background: The Basic Behavioral and Social Science Opportunity Network (OppNet) is a trans-NIH initiative to expand the agency's funding of basic behavioral and social sciences research (b-BSSR). OppNet prioritizes activities and initiatives that focus on basic mechanisms of behavior and social processes that are relevant to the missions and public health challenges of multiple NIH Institutes, Centers, and Offices (ICOs) and that build upon existing NIH investments without replicating them. http://www.oppnet.nih.gov.
