Knowledge valorisation as a success factor in research and grant applications
An increasing number of research funding applications require you to include a section on the non-scientific utilisation of your research and research results. Aside from academic quality, international research proposals will soon also be made to compete on the basis of societal relevance and utilisation. This workshop not only discusses the main questions on how to assess, test and describe the societal or economic value of your research, but also helps you develop a valorisation proposition and pitch to use in your grant application and contact with third parties.
Researchers interested in learning more on the “knowledge utilisation” opportunities that his/her research has to offer.
The workshop will kick off with a short introduction and overview of relevant information and actual cases in different research areas. Participants will be invited to actively share in the discussion, ask questions and relate their own experiences.
In the second half of the session, participants will have the opportunity to develop a valorisation proposition and pitch based on their research. Advisors from the Utrecht Valorisation Center, Utrecht University and Boertien Groep will be present to answer questions and advise.
The session will be held by Mirko Lukács, a business developer at Utrecht Holdings whose work involves knowledge transfer and collaboration with third parties and companies.
