Impact Canvas Workshop

  • 29 Jan 2018
  • (CET)
  • DTU, Kongens Lyngby, Denmark

Get to know a new tool to develop and communicate the impact of research projects

DTU proudly presents the Impact Canvas Workshop presented by Dr. Jörg Langwaldt, Tampere University of Technology. The Impact Canvas was introduced at the annual EARMA Conference, in Malta 2017 and thus this workshop will allow for a hands-on practical experience with applying the Impact Canvas as a tool in developing successful proposals.

Research funders increasingly assess and fund proposals based on the impact of foreseen results. Horizon 2020 calls for joint and multi-disciplinary efforts of academia and stakeholders during the entire research and innovation process to better address the expectations, needs and values of society. However, there is a shortage of tools that serve the need of university-based applicants to develop and communicate their innovative ideas to others. Especially university-based researchers might have limited background in innovation business and many existing tools, such as the Business Model Canvas, are designed for business planning.

The Impact Canvas aims to enhance early idea testing and development with the focus of the impact on society and/or the customer need.
