Many of us work very hard developing technologies and/or implementing them where they can improve human livelihood. But what are the societal impacts of this work? How can it be measured? This is not only an important subject at a personal level, but is many times a requirement in planning large earth looks at programs and their effects on economic development. The challenge is particularly hard when we are asked to document the societal impacts quantitatively. This panel looks at the experience of measuring the socioeconomic impacts and benefits of what we do. The panelists tell of their own experiences, and the audience participation will bring additional experience and stories that we can all share looking for good solutions. A community of practice will be introduced which is forming at an international level to address socio-economic benefits - measuring and monitoring impacts
