Research impact lecture and workshop

Targeted especially to researchers in clinical, biomedical and related fields.

How to identify and describe the impact of your research? - Research always has impact on the surrounding society. We might recognise the various impacts our research contributes to, but how well can we describe the path from our expected research results to the possible long-term changes? In the Impact Helper lecture, we will find out all about impact: what it is, how it can be maximised and if and how it can be measured. After the lecture we will have a hands-on workshop where you will create an impact plan for your research. The plan can be utilised in research funding application to various funders.

Research funding specialist Kirsi Ojutkangas is a true expert on impact. She will guide the participants to better know-how.
