Ringvorlesung Science meets society

Bridging the Gap: From Science to Societal Impact, how to maximise value creation from research using transdisciplinary multi-actor approaches
David Murphy, AQUATT, Dublin

The European Commission announced that "the European Union is a research powerhouse [and is] still the world's leading producer of scientific knowledge, ahead of the United States. However, Europe too rarely succeeds in turning research into innovation, in getting research results to market".
To respond to this, the concept of 'Open Innovation' has been launched, which is further supplemented by numerous legislations, processes and strategies promoting complementary philosophies. One such communication being the European Commission's Investment Plan for Europe where it is stated that to "boost research and innovation, [European Union] competitiveness would benefit from fewer barriers to knowledge transfer, open access to scientific research and greater mobility of researchers" .
AquaTT has been situated in the arena of capacity building; stimulating knowledge transfer and exchange; and communicating science to stakeholders for more than 25 years. Currently AquaTT is involved in several transdisciplinary research projects (16 H2020 projects). Inside those projects our role is typically related to the management of knowledge (dissemination, communication, knowledge transfer, exploitation, outreach). Working with the partnerships we apply our experience, processes and methodology to help ensure there is a measurable demonstrable value creation proposition from the research activities carried out.
AquaTT is a thought leader on Knowledge Transfer methodology having recently led the H2020 COLUMBUS project ( Representing the most substantial investment by the European Commission in Knowledge Transfer to date, the Blue Growth project that had an overarching objective "to ensure that applicable knowledge generated through European Commission-funded science and technology research was transferred effectively to advance the governance of the marine and maritime sectors while improving competitiveness of European companies and unlocking the potential of the oceans to create future jobs and economic growth in Europe".
In this seminar, David Murphy will introduce our knowledge transfer processes, reflect on AquaTT's experiences and provide some recommendations for researchers who want to achieve measurable impact from their projects.
