Impact of science, the talk of the town in the academic scene. The universities in the United Kingdom have a history of working with the REF-system (Research Excellence Framework). The importance of impact has also been picked up by the European Commission and National Funding Agencies (like NWO). But what is impact from SSH all about? And what can you as an academic researcher do to create impact and why would you even bother to make an effort?

We would like to invite you for a learning experience and join us in the ACCOMPLISSH Roadshow. Introductions will be given on the importance of impact from Social Sciences and Humanities. First results will be shared from the Horizon 2020 ACCOMPLISSH project in particular on co-creation between academic partners and non-academic partners and the ACCOMPLISSH Impact approach. In a panel discussion we would like to get deeper into putting co-creation and impact into practice, here at the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences.

The session will feed you with innovative ideas and practical approaches on how you can improve the impact-factor of your research. Furthermore, it is a great opportunity to catch up with colleagues in the Faculty since we end the session with informal drinks.
