Luris' Knowledge Broker Stefan de Jong investigated the way in which researchers create impact with their work and knowledge. An important conclusion: Many do not know what valorisation actually entails and therefore do not know how they can contribute to society. "Researchers often fail to recognize the contributions they and their fellows make." 'Many scientists have no idea what valorisation is', Leiden University newsitem, September 2015

The student team 'Piece of Skill' has been awarded first prize in the Leiden University Deans' Challenge.
