Lecturer: Tom Keenan, CSIRO
Location: Kollegiesalen, Brinellvägen 8, 4 vån
The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) is Australia’s national science agency. The purpose of CSIRO is ‘Solving the greatest challenges through innovative science and technology'. As a publicly funded research agency, it is vital to CSIRO to articulate the impact of its science and technology to government, the Australian people, and other key stakeholders.
In his presentation, Dr Tom Keenan, the Senior Advisor in CSIRO’s Planning, Performance and Impact team, will discuss why researchers should be interested in impact; and how CSIRO’s specific approach to the planning, monitoring, and evaluation of impact (driven by its Impact Framework) can assist research and other mission-directed organisations to both actually deliver impact, and provide effective evidence to key stakeholders of that impact.
