What's on at APH March 2023, 44th edition       !!! Best viewed in your browser 
Dear APH researchers, dear all,

March 1st I started working as an Impact Developer for APH. You might wonder, what does an Impact Developer do on a daily basis, or even at all? Simply said: supporting researchers in creating and increasing societal impact from their research.

How am I going to do this? By focusing on 3 main activities the coming period.
(1) The first one is a strategic one: together with the APH management and in consultation with the program leaders we will develop an APH impact strategy and implementation plan. Also input that has been collected bottom-up in recent years via surveys/interviews/pilots as part of an APH-wide exploration (and in which I have also been involved) will be included in the strategy development. (2) Secondly, stimulating and supporting knowledge sharing and awareness on how and why to create impact by organizing workshops and developing a digital platform with good and bad practices to learn from. (3) Thirdly and very relevant to you all, giving you practical support and advice on your impact project or idea. How this support exactly looks like will be part of the implementation plan.

I will keep you all posted on the different steps we will take on our road to strengthening the APH support on impact.

Looking forward working with you!
