The IMPACT-SC5 project aims at assessing the impacts of the 87 RIA and IA projects funded under the SC5 Work Programme 2014-15 looking at them in terms of their scientific, economic, societal and environmental performance, both individually and across portfolios of projects.
In this context, the scientific, economic, societal and environmental performance of the 87 RIA and IA projects under scrutiny will be measured by means of a well-designed set of indicators. A portfolio analysis will complement the project-level analysis in order to determine how projects perform together in relation to different objectives. Overall, IMPACT-SC5 will
- explore how impacts come together, i.e. the SC5 impact pathways,
- identify good practices and
- draw recommendations for policymakers and potential EU research funding beneficiaries to increase the impacts of future SC5 projects.
Particular attention will be paid to the broad and changing policy contexts to ensure a holistic approach for a better understanding of the performance (and the underlying factors) of the 87 projects.
Last but not least, throughout the project, stakeholder engagement will be strongly fostered towards accomplishing a greater visibility and extroversion of the project’s results. To this end, five (5) thematic stakeholder co-creation events will be digitally organised to validate the concepts and indicators developed and co-create policy recommendations.
