Advancing Societal Impact of Social Sciences and Humanities

An international course on creating opportunities for societal impact and business initiatives

After the pilot course of last year, AESIS proudly announces a new edition of this ambitious international course in Oxford, where leading experts in the disciplines of the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) will demonstrate how to stimulate societal impact of SSH. Questions that will be examined and answered include:

- What are the most effective ways to manage an impact unit?

- What are the pathways to integrate impact in research strategies?

- How do I make academic ideas 'market-ready'?

- How do I organise public & private alliances?

- How and when should I set up consultancy & other services?

The course will be held in an intimate setting, while each session will be taught in an interactive manner and includes collective exercises, in order to make this initiative as fitting as possible to all of your particular aims and needs. Experts from the UK, US and continental Europe will share their knowledge on issues ranging from IP-policies (yes, this is also possible for SSH research projects), business alliances and consultancy opportunities to generating awards and grants for research. This all aims to provide you with adequate insights and tools to stimulate and facilitate impact structures in your organisation.

Target groups:

- Science funders

- Science policy managers

- Research managers within Social Sciences & Humanities (SSH)

- Facilitators of Societal Impact (knowledge exchange, business development)

- Strategists within universities

- Managers of public-private SSH research & consultancy programs
