The Network for Advancing and Evaluating the Societal Impact of Science (AESIS Network) is an international, open community for any professional demonstrating the impact of science on the economy, culture, and well-being. The network has individual and institutional members, and thus connects different stakeholders.
AESIS Network’s goal is to stimulate the exchange of ideas and experiences, as well as to build up a common knowledge base for a better understanding of the impact of science on society. They aim to provide members with access to resources such as information about upcoming events, best practices in assessing societal impacts of science, opportunities for funding, and practical advice from experts.

Research To Action (R2A) is a learning platform for anyone interested in maximising the impact of research and capturing evidence of impact.
The site publishes practical resources on a range of topics including research uptake, communications, policy influence and monitoring and evaluation. It captures the experiences of practitioners and researchers working on these topics and facilitates conversations between this global community through a range of social media platforms.
R2A is produced by a small editorial team, led by CommsConsult. We welcome suggestions for and contributions to the site.
