Chapter 8: From practice to practice: an example for the relevance of research (projects) and its implications
Chapter 8 demonstrates the relevance of research drawing on the example of a research project that studies young women educated in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and are now working in these fields. As STEM fields are still male-dominated, the interviewees miss an exchange of experiences with like-minded individuals, which is why they perceive the research project outlined here as relevant. Among these interviewees, an online survey was conducted in order to find out how research (projects) need to be designed to be perceived as relevant for practice by the target group. The recommendations derived can help early career researchers to improve the relevance and impact of their research (project).
