Description of the Workshop
Research agencies often use Impact as one of the main criteria in prioritizing and selecting proposals. Researchers on the other hand often feel out of their comfort zone in discussing market demand figures and outreach strategies. In this seminar we investigate how thinking about impact maximization can lead to better research and improved success rates of research project proposals.
