How can research contribute to address pressing societal challenges, whilst remaining both independent and trustworthy, living up to the highest scientific standards of validity? In this policy brief, we explore multiple ways in which collaboration between researchers, artists, policy makers and practitioners contribute to research that is better equipped to result in societal impact. We provide practical examples, mainly from the research project Active Citizenship in Culturally and Religiously Diverse Societies (ACT).
