Seminar 1: Why societal impact?

Why would you as a researcher consider to put your knowledge to use outside of academia? And how could it be done?

The Swedish higher education act states that ”Universities’ responsibilities include collaboration with the surrounding society and informing the public about their activities to make sure that research results are utilized”. How can this be done and how can your research benefit from such activities? In this seminar we will provide you with examples of research utilisation and discuss how your ability to clearly describe the potential impact of your research will put you in a better position when applying for grants from Vinnova, Forte, Formas and VR, but also H2020 and ERC. What is more, you will get a first glimpse of what an impact journey can look like.
