Impact plays an increasingly important role, not just in the REF but also as being a fundamental part of research design. This workshop explores some of the ongoing examples of research impact being developed at Edge Hill. Researchers from across the University will present their work and discuss how impact has arisen from a variety of projects. Additionally each speaker will share their key impact tips and techniques and offer up their experiences of the different routes from research to impact. The workshop will also facilitate discussion networking and wider sharing of ideas.
The event is suitable for any Edge Hill researcher wanting to learn how colleagues are tackling impact and knowledge exchange, or simply wanting to see some examples of research impact from across the University.
The event will start at 1pm with a short buffet lunch.
