The COMPOSITE project received the ERIM Impact Award 2012

2012-12-20 16:20

The 2012 Award for the Impact on Management Practice goes to the COMPOSITE project, led by Gabriele Jacobs: Comparative Police Studies in the European Union (COMPOSITE). The jury says: "The Research Team of Composite has chosen a highly relevant, though highly complicated research area. It is complex, especially in terms of accessibility of the research domain (policing in itself and across ten different European countries), and innovative, given the ambitious and cross-disciplinary nature of the project. The team has designed a unique 'buy-in' and 'dissemination' model, involving both the top-level policy makers as well as the end-users. The entire setup of the research appears - from the start - focussed on achieving maximum impact within the research area. For example, policy-makers within police organisations will start cooperating and learning lessons from each other’s best practices, within and across the different regions and countries involved. This impact is being organised, among others, through a suite of (transnational) consulting services, being developed while the research is still in progress. The design of the process in COMPOSITE is therefore great example of academic research in action - where the value is as much in the process as in the outcome. Chapeau for this Research Team in setting up a unique and creative, impressive and highly relevant approach!"
The external jury consisted of: Vincent Kouwenhoven (Founder and Managing Director at eVentures), Paul Pietersma MMC (Managing Director of Berenschot) and Jacqueline Tammenoms Bakker (Non-Executive Director of Vivendi). The Erasmus Research Institute of Management (ERIM) honours once a year its best researchers of the joint graduate school of Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) and the Erasmus School of Economics (ESE) of various academic disciplines with different prizes such as the Dissertation Award, the Book Award and the Impact Award.
