In modern knowledge societies, researchers are not only expected to produce high quality, peer-reviewed, and replicable knowledge, but also to make it applicable for stakeholders in society. However, knowledge transfer and science communication are rarely the subject of disciplinary curricula and scientific education. The Impact School addresses this issue by providing young researchers with the principles and tools they need in order to turn their research into practical insights and have a lasting impact on society.
The Impact School is an international and interdisciplinary 3-day training, targeting young and upcoming researchers (PhDs and PostDocs). During the Impact School, participants will develop an impact strategy for their own research project and work collaboratively on principles for good scientific transfer. We combine hands-on sessions (based on the Impact Canvas) with input from renowned experts.
