RECAP: HvA Open Science Coffee

The Open Science Coffee at the HvA on May 21 at the AUAS, the last of this academic year, focused on the controversial term ‘impact’, which is surrounded by persistent misunderstandings. The speaker, Kathrin Metselaar – Business Developer at Innovation Exchange Amsterdam – came to open our eyes to the blind spots in the current perspective on the types of impact that practice-oriented research at the AUAS can have.
 
In summary, the value of our practice-oriented research hardly lies in the individual delivery of a research product that can subsequently be monetized. It often has an effect on society before the project has even started and in places where we are not used to look. Our appeal is therefore to all researchers who can use our support in making their unconscious achievements visible.
 
After the presentation we played our open science card games and had lunch together. These Open Science Coffees on location are a great success, so we will continue with this next academic year. If you have ideas for topics or speakers, please send an email to Raúl Inzaurralde, Community Manager Open Science & Digital Skills: r.inzaurralde@hva.nl.
