Intellectual Output no 2 of the HEISE Project: Roadmap for HEIs for Societal Engagement and Impact

The Teachers’ Toolkit was the starting point to develop the Roadmap for HEIs for societal engagement. The HEIs Roadmap is a virtual process model  (a Diamond Tool) available  at eamt.ee/heise, describing how the challenge solving model can be integrated to the overall societal impact model of HEIs and in what kinds of pre- and after requisites is needed from HEIs management. The impact assessment model has been integrated with the societal engagement model.

The Roadmap includes examples and visualizations. The Roadmap comes with explanations on how to build up the societal engagement model based on challenge solving as well as how to maintain it. It  provides ways to calculate the resources needed in management as well as educational setting.
