Survey: YUFE(RING) appreciates your input!

− 1 min read

What do you need as a researcher to successfully practice community-engaged research?

Are you a researcher at Maastricht University? Are you interested in other ways of assessing quality of scientific research than impact factors? Are you looking for new ways of how to engage the community within your research or communicate your results to the public? Then we would like to encourage you to take a few minutes to complete this YUFERING survey

The survey was developed by members of YUFERING, which is a Horizon 2020 project of the YUFE Alliance academic partners. The YUFE Alliance believes that Transforming Research and Innovation through Europe-wide Knowledge Transfer plays a vital role in providing the necessary knowledge for community-engaged research, including the support of social, environmental and economic transitions that can formulate responses to local, European and global challenges.

You will share your insights about engagement with external communities, commercialisation of research, and what motivates or inhibits you from conducting such activities.

Findings will help the YUFE Alliance map both (i) differences and (ii) best practices for research and innovation in contexts beyond fundamental research, for example, with Knowledge Transfer/Exchange partnerships, community-engaged research, and entrepreneurial activities.

Thank you very much for your input! In case of any questions you could contact Dr. Mireille Sthijns (YUFERING workpackage 2 coordinator) or the MPCER team.
