Area of interests:
Leonie van Drooge is senior researcher at the Rathenau Institute. Her main activities are research and policy advice on evaluation of research and ‘knowledge valorisation’ (the third mission of universities and the societal impact of research). Evaluation and valorisation of social sciences and humanities research has been a focus for a long time. She is an experienced project coordinator (e.g. of the SIAMPI and ERiC projects) and has extensive experience in collaborating with academics, academic departments and science policy organisations.
Leonie was involved in the development of the notion of productive interactions (in SIAMPI, an FP7-project) and has played a leading role in the implementation of new instruments for the evaluation of the societal impact of science, starting with the project Evaluating Research in Context. The results of her work have found their way into the Standard Evaluation Protocol for research evaluation in the Netherlands. Leonie has also worked as a technology transfer officer (University of Amsterdam), has been a member of the board of the University of Amsterdam chemistry shop, and has taught Chemistry and Society (University of Amsterdam). Leonie has a Master of Science degree in Science Dynamics at the University of Amsterdam.
