“Bioeconomy Impact 2016”, on 10-11 February in Dublin, is the first in a series of annual events which will challenge bioeconomy researchers to critically think about the value, impact and relevance of their research.
A better exploitation of research results is one of the key drivers to European economic growth and societal innovations. Researchers receiving public funding are increasingly challenged to foster the exploitation of their results in order to demonstrate the impacts and benefits of investing in scientific research. Knowledge transfer to industry and society as well as communication beyond academia are both levers to increase the impact of scientific results and/or developments.
A core activity of the EU-funded CommBeBiz project is to offer support to bioeconomy researchers in search of identification of impact fields and outreach. The conference “Bioeconomy Impacts 2016” therefore will focus on discussions and solutions for improved exploitation of research results, with keynotes and workshops to enhance capacities and key skills in impact identification and impact creation.
