REVALORISE+ Launches PLUS E-zine

We are excited to launch the first of our bi-annual PLUS magazines, dedicated to enhancing the entrepreneurial potential and social impact of Social Sciences and Humanities research.

As a group of higher education innovators, we aim to develop a new generation of SSH valorisation champions who are empowered and enabled to use their research to impact society. Our first edition of PLUS brings you face to face with the REVALORISE+ concept to explain the motivation and vision behind our project and our extensive plans over the next three years.

Our publication explains valorisation in higher education, gives examples and examines the potential barriers. The spotlight on valorisation in real life brings examples from Professor Emerita Robyn Ewing and University of the Arts, London.  Professor Ewing has used her research in creative pedagogies and the role of the arts in education to co-create the School Drama programme. Since 2009, the implementation of School Drama has improved teaching practices in schools in both Australia and New Zealand. Whereas the MA Arts and Cultural Enterprise initiative under the University of Arts is providing students with the necessary skills to valorise their work and projects related to arts and culture.

Our forward-thinking European initiative would not be possible without our team of nine dedicated partners who are ambitious about enhancing research impact. In this issue we meet a selection of them including University Industry Innovation Network’s (UIIN, the Netherlands), Institut Mines- Télécom Business School (France) and Crazy Town (Finland) These profiles give you a good insight into the scale of our project and the work we are undertaking.
