Newcomers: Research Impact: What, why, when, how? Now!

Understanding impact is a vital skill for any early career researcher who wishes to follow an academic career, and is also a skill transferrable to any sector in which organisations are interested in identifying, measuring, and evaluating the effectiveness of their projects (e.g. charities, human rights groups, and other third sector organisations). The course will introduce early career researchers, including research students, to the fundamentals of this skill. Building impact into your research requires you to have a clear understanding of what impact is and how to integrate impact practices into the research process. This introductory course provides an insight into research impact with a focus on how impact can be planned for, generated and evidenced.

The course will be facilitated by the University’s Research Impact Officers whose roles are dedicated to support academics to increase the non-academic impact opportunities from their research.  Their primary focus is the development of Impact Case Studies for the REF and to ensure impact is embedded throughout the research cycle:

Kirsti Badcock – Research Impact Officer (Social Sciences)

Kate Powis – Research Impact Officer (Humanities)

Matthew Wells – Research Impact Officer (Science and Health)
