The findings, experiences, and ideas that emerge from research have traditionally been utilized through academic publication and teaching programs. However, academic impact alone is no longer enough for a successful research career. With the growing emphasis in the research funding landscape on maximizing impact beyond academia, it is increasingly important that researchers reach wider society by embedding non-academic impact strategies in their projects, by working with a range of non-academic partners, and by using ever more innovative methods of dissemination and utilization. This course showcases a range of approaches researchers can employ to ensure that their research has impact and relevance beyond universities. It will also provide students with tools that will help them best communicate the value of their work to research funding agencies and potential investors.
The course is offered to PhD students in all disciplines from Linnaeus University and three other universities. The course consists of three mandatory seminars in the autumn of 2018 (Örebro, Östersund and Stockholm) provided by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Karlstad University. The innovation office Fyrklövern covers the cost of your course travel and accommodation. The course is taught in English.
