The University of Deusto is organising on 13-14 September an event to discuss the Social Impact of Research (Turing meeting room). The working session will count with the participation of the European Commission and renowned international experts (programme).
The event has a triple objective:
- to raise awareness on the relevance of social impact from different views and stakeholders types (science policy players, university research managers and social agents),
- to reflect on the different measures and tools for measuring social impact,
- to reflect on how to solve the existing tensions between excellent science vs social impact recognition, disciplinarity vs. interdisciplinarity, among others.
The event will be held in English and has limited capacity. In case of registration a confirmation message will be sent.
For registration, please contact IRPO at firstname.lastname@example.org
The event was organised with the support of the Spanish State Research Agency, within the framework of the Spanish National Plan for Scientific and Technical Research and Innovation (project nº ECT-2017-0335; funding: 180.100,88€).
