About

Alfrek stems from a growing frustration within academia concerning the lack of societal impact of social science.

As researchers, we spend substantial time and resources on solving factual problems. Sadly, these solutions have so far lacked a channel for reaching a global audience.

Alfrek takes on the challenge of supporting social science's strive for societal impact.

Rating

It is important that the practitioners rate the solutions they find.

The rating serves two purposes. First it makes good solutions easy to find. Second, it provides valuable feedback to the researchers.

Mission

We believe in the power of social science to solve practical problems.

Alfrek will make research within social science accessible and usable for practitioners.

Alfrek will make social science matter.



Core beliefs

Society invests substantially in Social Science research. The result of this research is seldom used to address challenges facing organizations.

There is a significant, unrealized value in scientific solutions for organizational challenges.

The problem is that the solutions are not packaged in a way that makes them usable outside academia.

Alfrek solves this by supporting researchers in the repackaging of scientific results into practical solutions that are easy to find and use by organizations.

The result is a direct channel for organizations to the latest research findings. This improves an organizations’ innovation capabilities and strengthens the competence development of the coworkers.

For the researchers, Alfrek offers an easy way to reach practitioners, and receive feedback and monetary compensation.

Alfrek makes good theory easy to use.
