Honoring researchers creating impact
The Impact Award is annually awarded to distinguished researchers or research groups who made meaningful contributions to society with their research and innovations. The award is an achievement award, that celebrates and acknowledges the importance of creating impact outside universities and in society.
Bart Klijsen (former director of IXA VU-VUmc): “For the Impact Awards we focus on the impact that a scientist or a research group has had on Dutch society. This we do on the basis of the seventeen United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. It is nice to see that Dutch science is very widely represented within these themes. We want to recognize and appreciate that. Appreciation of people who distinguish themselves in terms of knowledge transfer, impact and entrepreneurship doesn’t happen often enough.”
The Impact Award is part of the Amsterdam Science & Innovation Award (AmSIA). The Impact Award is an initiative of IXA (Innovation Exchange Amsterdam), the Knowledge Transfer Office of HvA, UvA, VU and Amsterdam UMC). IXA identifies and nominates researchers for the Impact Award with help of it’s extensive network in the universities.
