Assessing the broad societal impacts of research: the case of the NCCR North-South Programme

Other

Written by Simon Hearn

Researchers, programme designs, and donor strategies are increasingly questioning the impact of research on society. However, when assessing research impact, economic benefits still receive the most focus, with social and environmental benefits often overlooked. This paper draws on the Swiss National Centre for Competence in Research (NCCR) North-South programme to assess some of the societal impacts of research.
