How a standardised approach to research outcome tracking has benefited over 160 international funders, including the Novo Nordisk Fonden

Research Impact One Day Workshop - February 28th 2020 – Novo Nordisk Fonden Headquarters, Copenhagen

Research impact assessment enables funding organisations to identify what difference their funding is making. With many different approaches to reporting impact, the need to share best practices and learn from each others' successes (and mistakes!) is crucial to ensure smart funding decisions are made and their impact captured, measured and communicated. 

Novo Nordisk Fonden and Researchfish invite you to attend a one-day workshop to network, discuss and share experiences in tracking research and identify and report pathways to impact.


Parallel sessions include an introduction for Foundations new to the Researchfish platform. More experienced Foundations will also present their reporting frameworks, discussing what has worked for them and their best practices. The over-arching theme for the day is how a standardised approach to research tracking has benefited over 160 international funders, including the Novo Nordisk Fonden.

Who is it for?
Anyone who is responsible for tracking research and reporting impact, including Chief Science Officers; Senior Vice Presidents of Research Grants & Prizes; Directors of Science; Research Managers; Head of Research & Impact; Evaluation Managers; and Operations Directors.
