There will be three Impact Clinics in September, each organized at the premises of Helsinki Think Company. Please register using the links below:

Impact Clinic is targeted to the researchers of all fields, and the clinic is open to all researchers and collaborators of Finnish research organizations, free of charge. The people who benefit most from the clinic are post-docs and more senior researchers who do not have extensive experience from impact.

Impact Clinic helps you to understand what ‘impact’ means and why it is important in the world of today. You gain also an insight into how impact is defined and evaluated by the Academy of Finland, Tekes or the European Union. The clinic provides you tools with help of which you can analyze and enhance the impact of your research. Clear understanding of impact is a great asset when you apply for funding, since you are able to convincingly communicate why your research matters and how it is going to change the world for the better.

Impact Clinic broadens your view on impact, gives you an opportunity to discuss your research ideas with your peers, and provides you with valuable information about the services and support available at the University.

The clinic is organized by the University of Helsinki Research Services with the support of Helsinki Innovation Services Ltd (HIS) and Helsinki Think Company.
