IDfuse develops Impacter, an online tool that assists researchers with the Impact paragraph of their grant proposal. Impacter helps to prevent common mistakes, and compares paragraphs to the state-of-the-art in global science.


We believe that academia, industry and governments will all benefit from stronger collaborations. The first step is knowing where you can find relevant academic expertise, that’s why we built the ScienceFinder.

Impact workshops

Many researchers have not been trained to write knowledge utilization paragraphs . With the increasing weight that impact is getting in National and European grants, it becomes more important to train scientists to write ever more convincing knowledge utilization or impact paragraphs.

What our clients say

“The workshop from IDfuse really helped the participating researchers look for new ways to define the impact of their research and provided them with the tools they needed to identify relevant societal stakeholders”

Camilla Schaafsma Subsidy advisor / Rijksuniversity Groningen

The workshop by IDfuse really helped me to translate my research into values and write a pitch, which I used the next day – and it worked!

Julia Schlegelmilch PhD Candidate / VU

I very much appreciated the support of IDfuse. You replied quickly and constructively. Additionately, you also helped us write the grant up to the level of individual figures. A good feeling is still an understatement!

Nanne Hoekstra Senior Product Leader Environment/Deltares

The advice from IDfuse really helped to develop my knowledge utilisation section for the Vidi grant. They gave detailed comments on a draft and helped me to realise what was not relevant, and what to expand – highly recommended.

Dr. Camilla Hinde Associate Professor / WUR

IDfuse helped me to approach my utilization paragraph in a structured way. This paragraph is different from a scientific treatise. The tips provided by IDfuse were very useful and helped me to improve my paragraph.
