Research Impact: What it is, and how it is generated, evidenced and evaluated (part 2 of ‘Public engagement in the UK Research environment)
Tuesday 15th March 2022, 2-3:30pm via Zoom
This session will explore the question of research impact: what it is, and how it is generated, evidenced and evaluated. We will look at the impact agenda in broad terms, what institutions expect from their researchers in terms of impact and its role in research funding, and how you can develop the capacity of your research to generate impact. There will be opportunities to develop your thinking in these areas through conversations with other postgraduate researchers and practical activities.
This session is open to LAHP students in their 2nd or 3rd year of PhD study.
The deadline for booking a place will be Monday 14th March at 12pm.
