The social impact of publicly funded research for practice is not exclusively focused on the return for business. In some cases, the return can be focused on sustainability or on safety for the citizen or the consumer. All in all, it can be stated that the demonstrable influence of a specific research project on the world outside the academic world itself can be defined as 'Social Impact'.
Precisely because this Impact is not always easy to measure, this presentation of the Topsector Horticulture & Starting Materials Research IMPACT Award wants to make that appreciation visible to the researcher who has proven to be the most successful in this. The Award has a size of € 10,000.00. All nominees will receive an invitation for the Research IMPACT Event on December 10th 2019.
