Impact is a hot topic for researchers as it is a key priority for funders and plays a significant part in the Research Excellence Framework. But impact doesn’t just happen. It needs to be considered early in any research project and you will need a clear plan and a budget for impact generation and capture.
In this workshop you will identify what impact is (and isn’t), the different types of impact and the potential reach and significance of your research. You will reflect on how well prepared you are to create and capture impact and look at the important role played by your stakeholders.
We will focus on the need to get your research ‘out there’ through effective communication and begin the process of creating a ‘value proposition’ for your research – one of the first and most important building blocks for generating impact. You will also make a start on your Impact Map, which will provide a useful guide for you as your research evolves.
