Introduction

The ERIM Impact Narratives showcase how research produced by ERIM members contributes to society. For each of the five ERIM research programmes, the narratives gives and introduction, and a variety of examples of impact, as identified by researchers, but also by companies and industry. The examples show how research supported by ERIM impacts society on a variety of dimensions (economic, social, health, cultural, technological, legal, global …). Each narrative gives an introduction to the programme, then elaborates on a few examples, and then provides a synthesis.
