The ‘impact’ agenda plays an increasingly important role in the allocation of resources for research in the UK. The extent to which research undertaken by a University’s staff has generated non-academic impact plays a role in the allocation of funds via the REF. Research Councils also take into account the quality of impact plans (Pathways to Impact) when awarding funding to researchers.
At the end of this session, individuals will:
- Understand what is meant by ‘impact’ and how it is relevant to research
- Understand how to plan impact into research proposals especially for research council bids
- Understand how to use some simple impact planning tools
- Understand how to monitor and track impact during a research project
- Understand how to evidence impact for REF and other purposes
