Justyna Bandola-Gill, STIS PhD student, has been invited to spend four weeks in February at the Public Governance Institute at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. Justyna’s visit is funded by a COST Action exploring professionalization and social impact of European Political Science. As a part of the project, Justyna will conduct a comparative study of science policy and research funding documents from a set of European countries. The objective of the study is to explore how the notion of ‘research impact’ is defined, measured and weighted in a research assessment process across different European countries.

Justyna will also have a chance to present her research exploring recent institutional and cultural changes in the UK academia, stemming from the implementation of so-called impact agenda.
