Looking Towards Results

By Samantha Carty 

Over the next three years, a series of project outputs are expected from the project, which are designed to specifically address the issues previously identified with regards to the valorisation of social sciences and humanities (SSH) research.  

The Synthesis Report will present the main findings and recommendations from the investigation phase of the project and will focus on the effective pedagogical approaches and training strategies for valorisation and academic entrepreneurship in SSH; skills and knowledge gaps; and proposed learning objectives for the HackTheResearch Valorisation Training Programme and the European Valorisation Training Programme.  

The HackTheResearch Valorisation Training Programme for researchers will consist of three 2-day sprints (delivered at 5 partner universities) with topics to be identified from the findings of the investigation phase. The delivery of the Programme for researchers will be supported by the HackTheResearch Valorisation Toolkit for researchers. The Toolkit aims to help SSH researchers with the learning process during the Pilot Test and Validation phase of the project and will equip them with the right tools for SSH valorisation in general.  

The European SSH Valorisation Training Programme for Knowledge Transfer (KT)/Technology Transfer (TT) professionals will consist of two main blocks including  

  1. the SSH valorisation training and  
  2. the train-the-trainer programme based on the HackTheResearch programme for researchers. The programme will be designed to support the valorisation capability and entrepreneurial skills of KT/TT professionals with a specific focus on SSH. Thus, training these professionals how to instruct research staff in SSH valorisation, and in particular how to deliver The HackTheResearch Valorisation Training Programme. The delivery of the programme will be supported by a Training Toolkit for KT/TT professionals.  

The HEI project members will be delivering Cascading Training to their colleagues as part of the capacity building and the Certification Model for a Qualification as a Valorisation Professional or a SSH Valorisation Champion, will ensure greater further use of results as well as sustainability of the project.
