The Label Deusto Research Social Impact recognises research projects that demonstrate a potential social impact through:
- the transforming action and social impact for the people, entities, the environment and the society in general in alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals, the European policy priorities and/or the Basque Country RIS3 Strategy (or other relevant policies linked to the main project theme);
- the involvement, at different levels, of non-academic agents;
- the project’s contribution to the knowledge field beyond the scientific impact, giving evidence of adoption, uptake and exploitation of the results by the relevant stakeholders, and of dissemination of project results to the target group(s)
The University of Deusto has recognised 40 research projects with social impact.
