Societal impact

To achieve impact on our society, our department aims at meaningful exchange with and involvement of public and private stakeholders in its research, including communities, neighbourhood representatives and marginalised population groups.

Societal impact can be reached on many different levels and includes, but also goes beyond, outreach such as public lectures and public communication. We focus on four types of key activities that foster interaction between education, research and society at large: societal learning, advice, debate and co-creation.
