As researcher you have most likely come across terms such as impact, knowledge utilization and valorisation. These terms might cover what you've been doing for a long time already, or they might pose a new challenge or are a cause of concern. What do these terms mean exactly? What is expected in funding procedures and research evaluations? How to practically realise valorisation and impact? Luris invites you to discuss and jointly answer these questions in a workshop organized exclusively for the academic staff or researchers of the Faculty of Humanities. During the workshop guest speakers from the Centre for Professional Learning and LeidenGlobal will explain how collaborating with them helps you to have an impact. The aim of this afternoon is for researchers to obtain a better understanding of valorisation and impact 1) in policy, and 2) in the everyday academic practice. In the breakout sessions you will work on a valorisation strategy for your own research project(s).
