IMPACT COURSE: learning to utilise knowledge

On 9 May, Maastricht University launched its first IMPACT COURSE: an exclusive course about societal impact of research and knowledge utilisation. The UM wants to create awareness among its researchers about social impact of research and the opportunities of knowledge utilisation through this course, and how to realise more impact with their research. The IMPACT COURSE is interdisciplinary, which means that participants come from all UM faculties, including from the MUMC+ and Zuyd Hogeschool. This stimulates collaboration between faculties and knowledge institutes. The approach is hands-on and the end result of the course is a concrete plan for the utilization of the participants’ own research.
