This event was full - A shorter repeat event (with no limit on attendee numbers) will take place on Thursday 10 March 2022 (9-11:30pm CET).
Who is it for
This workshop is primarily designed to provide impact evaluation skills to those undertaking case studies as part of the ELIXIR-funded Strategic Implementation Study on Impact (including through ELIXIR-CONVERGE WP4) - their participation will hence be prioritised so that they can progress their case study.
- Gain new knowledge and skills related to impact evaluation, through hands-on learning, complemented with knowledge-exchange.
- Refine the case study ideas (or 'impact challenges'), which will be taken forwards under Work Package 2 of the Strategic Implementation Study on Impact.
Outputs and related events
Outputs from this event will be made available through the ELIXIR Intranet (requires login).
This event is part of the CONVERGE WP4 Workshop Series: Innovation, impact & communication - previous events were about Stakeholder mapping and landscape analysis, Outreach to funders and policy-makers, and Communications, and one upcoming event will be about Organising impactful hybrid conferences.
