The Impact of Science Conference was held in Leiden — the 2022 City of Science — over 3 days and focused on stimulating societal impact of science by building stronger, long-term structures for knowledge and data exchange, as well as Public-Private collaboration.

The need for science to tackle challenges our world faces is not a new phenomenon, but has increasingly grown on a global scale, with the world facing pandemics, environmental changes and societal struggles. Policymakers, businesses and other societal actors are increasingly aware of the value of scientific data and knowledge to support them in overcoming challenges, but in many cases the interaction between worlds is not structured or stable enough. For the 10th time in a row AESIS organised their annual conference on Societal Impact of Science, which brought together stakeholders in- and outside of the science eco-system to engage with each other on the most effective approaches for implementing policies, strategies, methods and tools to optimise societal impact of science and evaluate success.

This conference featured highly regarded and internationally recognised experts who will be discussing the contribution of research to the quality of life and well-being. The conference brought together experts such as R&D evaluators, university managers, research councils, policy makers, funders, and other stakeholders of impact. The goal was to share, evaluate, and discuss best practices around the world on:

– policy strategies for societal impact, creating (long-term) alliances between stakeholders;

– regional, national, and international instruments for evaluating and achieving impact;

– current issues i.e. on public engagement, evidence-based policy, interdisciplinary approaches, and, harmonising definitions and assumptions.
