Virtual Summit on Impact – Building a Common Framework for Assessing, Understanding and Maximizing Impact
The “Virtual Summit on Impact – Building a Common Framework for Assessing, Understanding and Maximizing Impact” organised by Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme and the EFC will take place online between 16-19 November.
There is a rapidly growing gap between pressing public needs and available resources. Forward-thinking philanthropies, governments, and other organisations that invest to achieve targeted education, economic, and social outcomes are continuously improving the methods they use to predict and measure the real-world impact of programmes they fund. Focusing on impact achieved is a necessary step to ensure limited resources are used in smart and efficient ways and to identify opportunities to improve outcomes.
What is the best way to measure the impact of a programme or project? How and when is impact best measured? What are the best practices? What is the impact of different measurement strategies themselves? What measurement tools are available? Can new applications of technology improve impact measurement?
The summit will be split into two events:
- 16-17 November – The launch event of the European Funders for Impact (EFI), a joint initiative between the EFC and Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme
- 18-19 November – Designing long-term strategies to promote impactful research on pressing global challenges, a two-days meeting organised by the Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme and dedicated to the measurement of impact in research activity
