If scientific research wants to be an answer to the rapid social and technological developments in the Horticulture & Starting Materials sector, then that research must actually have IMPACT. Topsector Horticulture & Starting Materials is organizing a theme afternoon on IMPACT on 10 December 2019 in collaboration with AESIS Network, at the World Horti Center in Naaldwijk (The Netherlands).
Experts from inside and outside the Netherlands inform and inspire the guests about the importance of social impact within the Horticulture & Starting Materials sector. We are looking for the most effective approach to demonstrating and stimulating the social impact of scientific research. An important part of the afternoon is the presentation of the Topsector Horticulture & Starting Materials Impact Award to the researcher who has achieved the most social impact.
