Impacter – analyze your impact paragraph

Impacter is an online tool that gives automated feedback on the societal impact paragraph of your research proposal. It provides you with an overview of similar funded research and gives an overview of the main ingredients of a good knowledge utilization or impact paragraph.

Impacter supports grant officers and researchers during the funding application writing process. Early drafts of Horizon2020 proposals and NWO proposals can be uploaded in Impacter. In just a few minutes, you receive feedback on the societal impact chapter, compares the proposed research with state of the art and checks the readability. In collaboration with RESEARCHconnect, it’s possible to use an old, denied proposal as the basis to search for new funding opportunities.

Impacter can help grant officers to identify exactly the aspects that the researcher should focus on for a more in-depth discussion. The tool is free to be used by all EUR employees.
