Profile

Jorrit Smit is a postdoctoral researcher in the project 'Evaluating Societal Impact'. With diverse science studies methods, he investigates the potential and limits of impact evaluation and its effects on scientific practice.

Previously, he conducted a PhD on the history and philosophy of valorisation and impact policies at Leiden University. This project was funded by a personal NWO grant for PhD's in the Humanities. Jorrit was a visiting researcher at UCL Science and Technology Studies (UCL-STS) and the UCLA History Department, and a research intern at the Rathenau Institute.
