This course provides participants insight into how academic knowledge in the humanities can be made applicable for social and economic utilisation. Thursday 21 March 9.30 – 17.00 | Bushuis/ OIH, room E1.01E | Lunch will be provided
To provide participants insight into how academic knowledge in the humanities can be made applicable for societal use. You will be trained in translating your research topic into concrete applications that can benefit society. This exercise will not only help you in preparing future grant applications, but can be equally useful as preparation for job interviews, also outside of academia.
The course is provided by IDFuse, a company that regularly organises impact workshops for the universities in Amsterdam, Utrecht and Leiden. Their approach is hands-on, so during the workshop you will practice defining how your research can be put into practice.
During the morning session, Dr Emiel Martens (Media lecturer, researcher, consultant and producer) will talk about his knowledge utilisation activities. Towards the end of the workshop we will move to the Venture Lab Humanities, where you will practice and present your pitch. Dr Jonneke Bekkenkamp (Director Venture Lab Humanities, UvA), Karin van den Bogaert (journalist and co-owner of Science ON AIR) and Albert Wijnen (IXA) will take part in the expert panel to give feedback on your pitches.
The workshop is coordinated by Brigit van der Pas (policy officer research department Faculty of Humanities).
