On 16 October 12 -13.00 I will be running a session for Northumbria staff introducing research impact. It will give an overview of what is meant by research impact and why researchers are interested in achieving impact beyond academia. It will encourage researchers to actively think about how they will achieve excellence with impact and to explore the pathways for realising it. Participants will also gain an understanding of the sources of further information and support available for embedding impact as part of their research process and outcomes. For an information packed hour, do come along!
