Research impact evidence toolkit


In order to make it as simple and routine as possible to gather the evidence of research impact, we are developing a toolkit of documents for download that can then be adapted to suit a specific project.

Many of these are likely to be more useful to academic colleagues within Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences – we are looking to expand the toolkit to cover a wider range of scenarios catering for every discipline of study.

Please offer suggestions for further templates that you would find useful. Similarly, please let us know if you spot errors/have ideas for improvement – these are very much working documents:

Below is further guidance on impact evidence:

Note that evidencing the impact of your research is not the same as a comprehensive evaluation of your project. Guidance and resources on project evaluation can be found below and also in the Public Engagement with Research section of the staff intranet:
