DEUSTO awards RENSKILL and WHY research projects for their positive impact and social transformation


As part of the sixth edition of the Deusto Research Social Impact Seal, Deusto has recognised the work of 8 new projects for their positive impact and social transformation. Among these, Renskill and Why projects from the Faculty of Engineering.

Renskill - Identification of the Skills and Competences Needed for the Professionals in the Renewable Energy Sector of the Future contributes to social impact by aligning policies of administrations, curricula of training agents and training plans of companies in favour of the promotion of renewable energies.

WHY - Modelling to better understand and predict household energy demand H2020 project is financed by the European Commission and proposes a causal modelling to quantitatively analyse human decision-making in energy consumption and their reactions to interventions.

Each of the projects have demonstrated their potential social impact in line with the Sustainable Development Goals, European policy priorities and/or the Basque government's RIS3 strategy. In turn, they have collaborated with non-academic agents such as municipalities, companies and non-profit organisations, providing answers that go beyond scientific progress in the area of knowledge and giving evidence of adoption, use and exploitation of the results by relevant external agents and of dissemination and valuation of the results in the target group.
