Research impact

Research impact is about making  your work useful to people, organisations and society at large.  It comes in many forms and is quickly becoming a major part of the academic landscape, including growing requirements on impact from research funders and the UK government. These events will equip you with the knowledge and tools to develop the impact of your research outside academia. They’re suitable for academics at any stage of their career, whether you’re looking for a refresher or are new to the topic.
