Seminar: We are starting a conversation about the use of ‘impact’ as a measurement of quality for research in the Humanities and Social Sciences in Sweden. To this end, two UK academics will share their reflections on the term’s use in recent research evaluations and hope to provoke a discussion about how the term can (or should?) be used. We invite participation from academics, funders and policy makers. Our hope is that this can be a fruitful start to a collaborative way of thinking about research evaluation. Please join us!
