impact cases

Aalborg University has a longstanding tradition collaborating with society and prioritising research with great use-value. This is also true for researchers from Departments at the Faculty of Social Sciences.

We have gathered a number of impact cases from the Faculty of Social Sciences to illustrate how research has had impact on areas such as economy, politics, culture, the judicial system, social relations, and the like. In some cases, research has had direct societal impact whereas in other cases, societal impact has become effective with time. The selection of impact cases illustrates the span and the dimensions in research at the Faculty of Social Sciences.
