Research and Innovation (R&I) policy is more than ever charged with demonstrating societal impact. If the new impact agenda of R&I policy is taken seriously, than this has several implications for policy design, implementation and evaluation.
This largest European R&I policy evaluation conference is devoted to the challenge of generating, understanding and assessing societal impact through R&I policy. It discusses new rationales and new demands for R&I policy in service of society, reflects challenges in R&I policy-making triggered by these rationales and demands, and scrutinises what is expected and delivered from different policy intelligence approaches, in particular impact assessment and evaluation.
Submission deadline: 10 June
