Since the unveiling of the RCUK Impact Agenda researchers have faced a challenge to demonstrate the impact of their research, whether through creating economic prosperity, improving health or changing governmental policy. But, what exactly is impact? What does it mean for your research? Why should you care? And, how do you demonstrate and create impact?
Recognising the increasing need of researchers to plan, discuss and report on impact through Pathways to Impact statements and case studies the Institute and University of Cambridge have joined forces to develop an ‘Impact Workshop’. This interactive one-day workshop will provide the opportunity for you to explore routes to impact, gain a better understanding of what impact is, find out how best to communicate your research impact to funders, and find out what the Babraham Institute and University of Cambridge are doing to support the generation of impact.
