Assessing the broader impacts of research: A review of methods and practices

NIFU Working PaperĀ 2015:8. This study was commissioned by the Swedish Research Council for Environment, Agricultural Sciences and Spatial Planning (Formas). It maps how societal and broader impacts are assessed in four funding agencies outside Sweden (NERC in the UK, NSF in USA, Horizon 2020 and the Research Council of Norway). Experiences with different practices and methods are discussed in order to provide Formas with information for developing their own practises.
