An overview and the presentations of the Impact Assessment Workshop in March 2023.

Federation of Finnish Learned Societies has launched a project to develop a joint impact assessment framework adaptable to the Finnish universities’ profiles and needs. To provide an overview of state-of-the-art impact assessment frameworks internationally, and to discuss best practices and experiences for mutual learning and further development of impact assessment frameworks, a workshop was organised 16 March 2023.

At the workshop, five excellent presentations were given on the impact assessment in the following countries: the UK, Poland, Norway, the Netherlands and Finland. All the presentations can be found below.
