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?
In 2024, IXA will start a new learning path on valorisation and creating impact with your research. The Learning Path Valorisation and Impact aims to inspire researchers and create awareness about the importance of valorisation and impact. We offer a learning traject in which researchers can acquire the skills and knowledge required to successfully valorise.
After this learning path, researchers can start working on their own plan; an impact plan, a communication plan or business plan. The focus is on their own research or idea, which is further developed during this learning traject into a service, product or for public outreach. The sessions are interactive with plenty of room for questions and collaboration with and learning from fellow researchers.
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.
Pilot: 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)
Date UvA researchers: February 15 at Roeterseiland Campus.
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.
Impact journeys of Amsterdam researchers
Many researchers have already preceded you. Would you like to learn from them how they took the first steps in their impact journey? Watch the videos or read the blogs of a number of researchers and learn how they started, what they encountered, what their next steps were or how they obtained funding.
