“Investigating the societal impact of research: Past achievements and future developments”

On Thursday 28th and Friday 29th of November 2019, ECOOM-Brussels organizes a colloquium on the societal impact of scientific research at the Free University of Brussels (VUB). Gathering academics, policy makers and other stakeholders, the ECOOM-VUB colloquium on the societal impact of research addresses an increasingly topical subject in current and future developments in the role of research in society. Forwarding the views of various actors in the conceptualization, registration and evaluation of societal impact in relation to research, the colloquium aims to assess the current state of the art and contribute to upcoming evolutions.

Researchers and policymakers are invited to attend this two-day event to participate in debates on the nature and conceptualization of ‘societal impact’, discover methods to measure this impact and to explore the role of societal impact in contemporary research policy.
