Impact refers to all changes that are expected to happen due to a project’s activities. Impacts may occur over different timescales, affect different type of actors, different scales (from local to European level), and different dimensions (e.g. societal, economic, academic impact). Examples are:

• Societal impact - social improvements e.g. via the use of project results by policy makers or other societal actors.

• Academic impact – impact on the academic community, e.g. by establishing new methodologies.

• Economic impact – e.g. creation of jobs, establishing new products or services, fostering economic growth
