Impact training for researchers

All scientists want to make a difference, whether in science or in society. Increasingly, scientists want to have an impact in both areas. But it can be a challenge to create enough room in your agenda and your mind to figure out which projects you want to focus on.

Hakuna Matata science & media supports scientists who want to achieve more societal impact, but don’t know how. This training will help you turn your abstract ideas into concrete plans, resulting in an impact plan. Writing an impact plan will help you make choices, describe your qualities, and structure your approach to achieving your goals.

Marieke gave the training, together with Jeanine de Bruin of Hakuna Matata science & media, in 2021 and 2022 for the VU and the Amsterdam UMC.
