The AESIS network mirrors the growing interest in societal impact of science amongst all stakeholders of innovation, both at institutional as well as individual level. Our members work in a variety of professions from all over the world and are involved in the evaluation of impact, research strategy and policy making, funding or other impact support. Our aim is to strengthen our global community by offering our members a platform for exchange of expertise, questions, information or any other item they want to share.
All this would not be possible without the help of our partners: Friends of AESIS and our institutional members. This support of key-players from our divers community enables us to improve our services to our members, to reach out to a larger audience and to strengthen the development of our mission in general. As a friend of AESIS your company receives discounts and guest passes for relevant events and the possibility to connect with our network through the newsletter and visibility during our meetings.
