Please note: the date for this event has changed to Tuesday 7 March.
The ‘theoretical domains framework’ of behaviour change theory suggests that women are more likely to consider the barriers to research and we want to ensure women are provided with the information, skills and knowledge to improve their personal research profiles.
This session will outline what is meant by research impact and how such activities should be included in research applications. In addition impact for REF purposes will be explained to help individuals ensure that any research impacts are maximised for future REF returns.
By the end of the event, participants will understand:
- what is meant by impact and the different kinds of impact
- how to include impact activities and its capture in research applications
- what is meant by impact for REF purposes and how to maximise impact generated during research for the REF return.
Led by Gethin Owen and Andrew Taylor
Although the workshop is for both female and male academics we promote it specifically to women as research shows that female academics are less likely than their male counterparts to realise their full potential with regards to research engagement and impact.
