The sixth annual Impact of Social Sciences, Humanities & Arts (SSHA) conference, organised by AESIS, will be taking place in Stockholm, Sweden. VA is one of the collaboration partners for the conference.

In this 3-day conference, we bring together research managers, science policymakers, funders, knowledge exchange experts, and other relevant professionals from all parts of the world to venture into subjects such as:

  • How does cultural change have a social impact in the context of SSHA?
  • How do we foster trust and credibility of SSHA in society?
  • What does impact mean in the context of different segments of society, and through which robust and valid indicators can you assess it?
  • How can the path to impact be made more accessible, and which skills can enable one to optimise impact inter-sectoral collaboration for the sake of the public as a whole?
  • How to better understand the impact in the face of societal challenges, such as climate change, health, diversity and conflict?

In order to offer the most insightful programme, AESIS is collaborating with the Swedish Research Council,  Riksbankens Jubileumsfond and Vetenskap & Allmänhet. Working with them and other partners involved in the Swedish Science-Eco-system provides an excellent and inspirational context to foster the worldwide discussion on impact!
