Maximising the impact from research is now a requirement of most research funders. But how do we plan, engage and monitor our knowledge exchange and collaboration activities to ensure we create impact, and can demonstrate this?
This one day training session will draw on the growing body of literature about research utilisation to explore and problematize the processes of research impact and measurement. The first part will focus on developing understandings of how research is taken up, used and re-used by non-academics, and how this process might lead to the kind of changes in awareness, policies and practices. The second part will address issues in assessing impact, and allow participants to start to develop an impact framework for their own research.
