NCRM are hosting two FREE workshops led by Prof Mark Reed (Fast Track Impact) based on his research and the latest evidence on how to monitor, evaluate and evidence impact. You will learn how to use a range of monitoring and evaluation tools that will save you time and provide robust evidence of impact. As part of the session, you will receive a PDF copy of the second edition of The Research Impact Handbook.


The morning workshop will be aimed at doctoral researchers and ECRs and the afternoon workshop will be for those already established in their research careers and will include an emphasis on REF2029.


Both workshops will include a session for applicants planning to enter the NCRM impact prize, who will need to demonstrate a relationship between their research impacts and involvement with NCRM, for example events, training, conferences, methodological development initiatives and use of research methods.


Key benefits:

  • Learn about simple entry-level tools to identify and track impact indicators and more advanced methods to demonstrate cause-and-effect relationships between research and impact.
  • Think about ways you can make tracking your impact quick and easy.
  • Be inspired with examples of mixed-methods evaluations of research impact that anyone can use to quickly and easily collect robust data.
  • Learn how to collect evidence-based testimonials. 


At the end of the workshop, you will:

  • Receive slides and links to free resources to help you embed impact in your research.
  • Have the option to make a commitment to an action based on the course and receive a follow-up email from Prof Reed to check in and help as necessary after a month.


Prof Reed will continue to answer questions from participants via email after the course, guaranteeing a response to all questions within one week.
