Abstract
This paper presents Ghent University’s initiative to launch thematic interdisciplinary SSH-consortia (IDC) with focus on societal impact. After a pilot phase the SSH-consortia are recently evaluated to receive sustainable funding and embedment in the University (policy) structure with the objective to enhance societal impact of SSH-research. During the pilot phase the consortia developed organically bottom-up and have been evaluated externally. The core of the consortia lies on fostering interdisciplinarity and societal value creation leading to societal impact. A central key position within the consortium is the coordinator who is permanently assigned to guarantee a sustainable working and development of the consortia. The pilot phase showed that the interdisciplinary cooperation between the consortia and the with the central Directorate for Research Affairs provides a valuable extra dimension in the working on societal impact.
