Who is it for
This is a repeat webinar for the fully subscribed Getting started with impact evaluation training event. This time, there is no limit to the number of attendees, and anyone interested in impact (of research infrastructures) is welcome to join. You do not need to be part of ELIXIR.
The event will be shorter (2.5h) and less hands-on (no group work using MURAL) than the original event, yet still providing the core contents. Learning will again be facilitated by impact evaluators from our partner EFIS - see their article on this very topic!
- Gain new knowledge and skills related to impact evaluation, through formal teaching
- Complement this with knowledge-exchange based on four ELIXIR-relevant case studies developed during the first event (Skills & capacity-building; Service provision; Cloud investment; Cooperation)
Outputs and related events
All outputs from this event (including the video recording) are available through the ELIXIR Intranet (requires login), but the following direct links are provided without restriction:
Participants to the events will have received a link to the video recording.
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
- Getting started with impact evaluation (original event), and
- Organising impactful hybrid conferences
The event is also organised under the aegis of the ELIXIR-funded Strategic Implementation Study on Impact.

List of case study outputs to be presented
|Topic description||Main ELIXIR Impact area|
|Skills & capacity-building||Setting-up and running a MOOC as part of a EU-funded project||Human capital, skills development, e.g. better skills for users and resource providers|
|Service provision||Developing and operating a bioinformatics service (e.g. database, software, etc)||Research efficiency, e.g. faster, easier, more integrated|
|Cloud investment||Investing in storage/compute for infrastructures operators to accelerate the creation of data assets (e.g. reference genomes) for others to use in their research||Research efficiency, e.g. faster, easier, more integrated|
|Cooperation||Establishing and running an industry engagement programme||Relationship capital, e.g. benefits of working together, facilitated knowledge-sharing & cooperation|
