Your Impact

#Applied Relativity, #TECH9
You ivory tower intellectuals must not lose touch with the world of industrial growth and hard currency. It is all very well and good to pursue these high-minded scientific theories, but research grants are expensive and you must justify your existence by providing not only knowledge, but concrete and profitable applications as well.

Does your creative work really matter? What is your real life impact. For the world, for humanity, or at least, for actual human beings outside the research community?

Some colleagues and I recently made a sheet listing the different aspects necessary for practical application of research topics. I think it is one of the best works our group of doctoral students did, and perhaps it is interesting for other groups as well.
