- Reflection about the potential of your own research topic/idea
- Assessing potential through identifying users/stakeholders
- Developing or extending potential use cases based on your research & network
Researchers feel the need to see practical value and implications of their research. However, especially in fields of foundational research struggle to do so. This can potentially lower the perception of the own research and trigger doubts of the selected path. The Research Canvas is an approach to help researchers identify practical applications of their research results and to trigger action by enabling the identification of potential users and stakeholders. The Research Canvas fosters out-of-the-box thinking and discussion with other workshop participants. This workshop is highly active and will be organized by professional coaches. The coaches can also be reached out to after the workshop for more in-depth guidance.
