KTH contributes to the surrounding society through research, education and cooperation. To find ways to measure our contribution to and impact on society KTH started the project Impact in 2015.
The KTH project “Impact” has been active since 2015 and is managed with support from Vinnova. The goals of our work with impact is it to produce material and recommendations for how KTH should describe its role in society more efficiently, improve mapping effects and better identify areas of development.
The project Impact is led by a project leader together with an impact launch leader at each of KTH’s schools. The project reviews the possibility to implement a common set of guidelines and measuring system called “KTH pathway to Impact”. The word impact is defined as an effect, change or advantage for economy, society, culture, policies or services, health, environment or quality of life beyond academia.
