Science funders and research programme designers are constantly challenged to maintain an effective and efficient science funding system, while justifying the investments in scientific research towards politics. The pressure increases on governmental and non-governmental science funding organisations to increase the extent to which they demonstrate the economical and societal returns on their investments in science.

In countries in all parts of the world, experts are working on improving the process of measuring and demonstrating the impact of science on society. In the past years, new methods have been developed to better justify and demonstrate the societal impact of scientific research by universities and research institutions. Increasingly, research councils do not just ask to promise impact of new research ideas, but also to plan activities to involve stakeholders and realise impact. Together policymakers, research councils and other stakeholders have to develop effective systems for the particular scientific climate in their country such as for example the Research Excellence Framework (REF) in the UK.

During this interactive training seminar, experts from multiple countries, leading the innovation in research funding approaches, will discuss their experiences and they will provide insights on how you can organise a national research impact strategy. The seminar brings together experiences of organisations, insights in the dynamics of research impact, as well as a hands on case study.
