Thanks for the insights. The contribution to the society or impact is the target funders are looking for. So from my perspective translating objectives to impacts needs new transformative strategies like the theory of change which I have conceived as a concept entitled "Tchouaffe's theory of change: TToC" (Tchouaffé, 2021) as tool to evaluate the impact of science-policy interface network on a particular society, based on five determinants (Scorecards on awareness, Know-how, Attitude Participation, Self-evaluation).
Have a good day.
