Societal Impact and Relevance of Research (SIRR)

SIRR aims to clarify in the Aurora network the university’s role in society and its position regarding global challenges.

This includes a demonstration of societal value and relevance of research and education. The first goal for the near future is to agree on a policy regarding impact in research within Aurora, working on separate policy documents on research impact and open access and open science.
