Special Interest Group on Impact

Already at the time of application, an increasing number of funders expect that the researchers are able to explain which impact the project will have. What will be the outcome of the project and which areas in society and stakeholders will be affected?

This Special Interest Group will provide space for reflections and inspiration on how to deal with and describe impact within different, scientific disciplines.

The network was formed after a meeting at AAU in Copenhagen 2018. After a meeting with David Phipps at SDU in February 2019, 23 people from different organisations in Denmark joined four different groups - all working with different aspects of Impact.

Files and documents relevant to this SIG is found in the Impact Toolbox.

Join the discussion forum for the group.
