Social Impact Assessment

In the "Impact Assessment" workshop , key concepts of impact assessment are presented (eg chain of effects, effect box ) and the question of what impact measurement can be used is investigated. The focus of the training is the step-by-step approach as well as different methods for the measurement and presentation of effects. A brief excursion into the currently prominent social return on investment analysis will also be made. The course contents are not only prepared theoretically, but applied in practice to practical examples based on participants' own examples in group work. A critical comparison of the strengths and weaknesses of impact analysis finally completes the training.

The workshop will be led by Expert * in Olivia Rauscher, NPO & SE Competence Center of WU Vienna.
