Valorisation Activities and SSH Research Ripeness for Impact

DANDELION Workshop – 31st October


In the context of the Conference “Democracy and Europe – our common future?“, the project DANDELION (‘Promoting EU funded projects of inclusive, innovative and reflective societies’) is organising a workshop on the 31st of October 2017 (14:30 to 17:15) around the theme of “Valorisation activities and SSH research Ripeness for Impact”.


The workshop aims at bringing together SSH researchers, research managers, such as National Contact Points, and dissemination/impact managers, in order to generate actionable knowledge for the everyday practice of SSH research, and help demonstrate and enhance its unique value.


In two consecutive working sessions, we will

FIRST, explore the multitude of research dissemination, communication, and transfer activities between SSH researchers and stakeholders from policy, civil society and business, which leads to positive impacts and societal value out of research; and


SECOND, based upon illustrative cases brought by all participants, we will position ‘productive interactions’ among stakeholders within the stages of the research cycle, which help research results to ‘travel’ outwards, triggering exchange.  We will focus thereby on the dimensions of the When, With-whom, What, How, and What-for of the activities identified in the first session, in order to come up with what works, where barriers exist, but also untapped potential for exchange and collaboration among SSH researchers and stakeholders from policy, civil society, and business.


The number of participants will be limited to 30 and selection will be based upon criteria of diversity, experience, and expertise.
