This online interactive course will introduce effective ways of collaboration between research institutions and external stakeholders and build on an impact strategy for EU funding.

Research institutions, most notable Universities (of Applied Sciences) throughout the EU are increasingly in the position to apply for EU research funding. Several EU initiatives were launched to give Universities access to these grants in order to strengthen their research programmes. To increase the chances of receiving this funding, it is important to know how the EU decides on these applications and understand the role of demonstrating the Societal Impact of the research project in this process.

Join Jan Andersen, Danielle de Boer, Simon Kerridge and other expert trainers during this 5-half-days online course. The AESIS Network invites scientists, policymakers, research managers- and administrators, science funders, and other professionals involved in research impact to discuss themes such as:

  • Taking an active role within an EU research strategy
  • Integrating impact in an institutional research strategy
  • Effective collaboration with research institutions and societal partners
