(15 Sept 2020) University is a place for education, and it can provide the foundation in alignment with United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Among the various priorities of universities, research is one of the sectors that can support, promote, and contribute to achieving all the 17 SDGs. However, most researchers and the research planners are finding it difficult to outline an executable research strategy that accelerates SDG-perspective research work through inter-disciplinary collaborations.
In responding to these challenges faced by the universities, ies Research, a subsidiary of iGroup, has recently published two case studies aiming to guide a better SDG impact planning. “Research Impact: The Challenges of SDG Evidencing” addresses the challenges to create, showcase, and communicate potential SDG Impact to target audiences; “Research Impact: How universities implement it” suggests practical approaches to initiate SDG Impact planning for universities. Both case studies provide examples from different universities.
