How to plan your research impact with UCD impact planning canvas

Impact Planning Canvas is a tool for identifying the possible impact and planning for how you can achieve it in the best way. Based on research results and on the researcher’s terms. After an introduction of the concept as well as being introduced to the tool you will have the possibility to use your own research as a base for the exercise. The session will be held in break-out room where practical help and guidance from an experience innovation advisor will be given for individual support.
