RI-PATHS participatory workshop at DESY

Date(s) - 08/05/2019
All Day

Hamburg, Germany

Quantifiable economic impacts of research infrastructures

In the past decade, some large research infrastructures have begun to implement elaborate approaches for economic impact assessment with the ambition to clearly demonstrate their contribution to socio-economic development in monetary terms. In this context, in-depth methodologies have been developed to capture short-term effects caused by expenditure and employment as well as long-term impacts conveyed through knowledge spillovers, education and training, and innovation effects at qualified suppliers. This workshop intends to explain a selection of these methods in detail and to make related experiences available to a broader range of interested organisations.

To that end, this workshop will bring together academic experts to introduce established indicator systems with practitioners from RIs to report on the costs, resources and competences required to collect relevant figures in practice.
