Workshop: Research Impact Canvas – From Research to Reality


In most cases, the value of the different impacting aspects of your research is dependent upon the particular stakeholder. Many researchers find it difficult to transform their research questions and activities to formulate the impact value (i.e. value for the society). The Research Impact Canvas tool has been developed to support a researcher in his or her intellectual process to pinpoint what in the research project that has an impact value and for whom a specific impact value is of relevance.

If you would like to explore an idea of yours, and how it can potentially have an impact outside of research, then join the workshop.

In this workshop we will guide you through the Research Impact Canvas starting at your present spot in your research project and ending up with a good idea of what assets you have in your research project and a pitch for a relevant stakeholder.
