Kiitos Suomi – Thank you Finland

Kiitos Suomi

REVALORISE+, an Erasmus + Knowledge Alliances project is now in its third year of working to enhance the entrepreneurial potential and social impact of social sciences and humanities (SSH) research. Project partners recently visited Finland to discuss their achievements and next steps

The meeting was hosted by Crazy Town Oy, a community-driven coworking and business accelerator in Finland. Following the 3- month training programme for SSH researchers, Crazy Town was the ideal location for the REVALORISE+ partners, to discuss the feedback from the participants and get a better understanding of a community that can support and facilitate early-stage start-ups.  However, profit is not the only reason to consider the financial side of knowledge creation – social impact, sustainability, recognition and support for the next generation of researchers are also important.

The main goal of REVALORISE+ is to develop a new generation of SSH valorisation champions who are empowered and enabled to use their research to impact society. With this as a central focus for the meeting, the partners held an immersive, hands-on workshop around the training programme feedback and evaluation with a view to ensuring the future sustainability of the project. Later this year, the project partners look forward to meeting in Vienna for a showcase event of the REVALORISE+ programme.
