2nd COLUMBUS Annual Conference: "Achieving  Impact from Marine Research"

07 Nov 2017

Brussels, Belgium

An international forum to bring together actors interested in sharing best practice and learning about initiatives and sectoral progress in Knowledge Transfer. This conference will offer an opportunity to collaboratively explore the barriers and challenges, and possible solutions, to achieving the impact potential of marine and maritime research, at all stages of the funding cycle. This conference is intended for all those who are invested in achieving greater impact from marine and maritime research: such as funding agencies and evaluators, impact professionals, research organisations, potential recipients of research findings (e.g. industry and policy), and researchers themselves.
