Research impact today goes beyond academic publishing. Management research has significant policy impact (public policy, industry, NGOs, students) and research is increasingly diffused through media (traditional media and social media). Horizon 2020 initiatives are a big challenge both for researchers and practitioners.

EIASM in collaboration with FNEGE would like to discuss with you how we can support research outreach to support Horizon 2020.

Why research impact?

  • In today’s academic world, research impact is wanted by academic institutions as well as research funders. Traditional academic output (papers, books, etc.) still represents the academic core production and is a pre-condition for other types of impact.
  • Most stakeholders do not consume traditional academic output but rather focus on practice/policy oriented outputs.
  • Diffusing research in media is necessary but not sufficient to have policy impacts. Simple press releases by research institutions have limited impact.
  • Research outreach policy impact is inherently long-term.

For whom is this workshop useful?

  • Research faculty members who seek enhanced knowledge, skills, and networks related to research outreach
  • Mid/Senior academics
  • Final year PhD students
  • University outreach officers and related personnel working with research outreach
  • Journalists interested in business and social science

What will the workshop cover?

  • How to improve the impact of research both within academia and to non-academic actors (e.g. diffusing research) 
  • How to improve the impact of research more broadly with economic/political and social decision makers
  • Showcase of tools used in the management of social media and traditional media
  • Roundtable discussions and workshops with researchers experienced in in the management of social media and traditional media
  • Roundtable discussions and workshops with journalists and policy makers used to consume, report, and act on business research.

The workshop will take place in the Ecole des Mines in central Paris, 6-7 April 2017, from lunch to lunch. 
Address: MINES ParisTech / PSL Research University 60, boulevard Saint-Michel, 75 272 Paris Cedex 06 - France
