The selection committee will assess, inter alia, the originality and creativity of past and future valorisation activities, the evidence of successful knowledge transfer and the societal impact of activities, and the way in which research and valorisation activities are linked.

The prize of €2,000 will go into the personal budget of the FASoS staff member(s). The prize will be awarded at the Research Heidag which takes place on 4 June 2020.

What is Valorisation?

Valorisation or ‘valorisatie’ is a term used to describe the contribution which research adds to society, and the process of delivering this contribution. It covers many forms of societal engagement, such as appearances in the media, engaging in the public debate, providing consultancy services, or helping with the broader processes of discussion and self-reflection in society. Valorisation can happen on different levels (local, regional, national and international), with diverse partners and communities, and in different formats (workshops, stakeholder seminars, websites, etc.). Valorisation is increasingly valued in Dutch and European science policies, and has become a criterion for evaluating research proposals in some funding schemes.
