Learning Path Valorisation and Impact

Dates
18 January till 23 April - 2024

Ever think about the impact that your work can have outside of academia? Would you like to explore how you can increase the impact you’re already making? As of January 2024, IXA will offer a new learning path on getting involved in valorisation and creating impact. The objective? To inspire you and make you aware of the power that comes with creating value and impact through your research.

Start and timeline

IXA will start a pilot of the new learning path in January. The duration of the learning path is January – April 2024.

The first one-hour (9:30-10:30 AM) module starts on different dates at each knowledge institution in January and February.

Dates VU researchers:  January 24  and February 8 at VU campus
Dates Amsterdam UMC researchers: January 30 (location VU) and February 13  (location Meijbergdreef)
Dates UvA researchers: February 15 at Roeterseiland Campus (researchers of all UvA faculties) and February 29 at Humanities Venture Lab (researchers of Faculty Humanities)

For whom?

Researchers from Amsterdam knowledge institutions are welcome to join the learning path. The path is particularly suitable for late phase PhD students and postdocs who want to become proficient in valorising their research.

About the Learning Path Valorisation and Impact

The path consists of 3 modules; an introductory session, an indepth session and two sessions in which you work on your own idea. Participating researchers can work on a number of skills corresponding to their own needs. The focus will be on translating your own research into the idea that you will further develop into a service, product or way of public outreach. Through this learning path you can take your idea a step further in a short period of time. How you spend that time is entirely up to you. Important: you can follow all modules as a continuous learning path or as self-standing. 

Location

The first session will take place at your own knowledge institution. The knowledge institutions will alternate hosting the sessions so that participating researchers can experience other institutions.

Registration

Would you like to participate? Please send an email to Caroline Kleine Staarman: info@ixa.nl.

No costs

There are no costs associated with the learning path. Simply register beforehand please.
