Does your work matter? – The impact of our research on society
- Every researcher is working harder and harder to perform the best possible research. From the pure research work from the PhD student to the never ending grant writing of Postdocs and Professors.
- But can this hard labour be felt in the world beyond our university? How can we improve the impact of our research on society as a whole? Does society even know what research is performed at the university? Can research be performed in coorperation with the academic world and the outside world?
- A group of experts share their views on our research can be more impactfull in academia and beyond our university or academic journals
