Including Open Innovation and Impact in Funding Proposals
Open innovation and impact-oriented research practices seek to improve the transparency, trustworthiness, reusability, and accessibility of scientific findings for the research community and society as a whole. The interdisciplinary and interactive training invites early career researchers to gain theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the rising demands of "Open Innovation" in funding scenarios, including stakeholder engagement strategies and "Impact"-oriented proposal design.
The dialogue-oriented training will empower participants via a mix of input, reflections and practical sessions. A major goal of the training will be to enable participants to meet the requirements of impact-oriented, open innovation processes in national and international funding programs.
