Event description


Developing impact case studies is a requirement for ERA pilot and ERA 2018, understanding engagement and institutional mechanisms for supporting engagement is key to a successful submission.

This one-hour intensive session is aimed at supporting those new to writing engagement narratives and approaches to impact (Part A of an impact study). Using our experience of working with universities to write impact case studies and delivering workshops to many researchers in the UK and Australia, this session will utilise these reflections and learnings to share insight for those currently developing engagement narratives for EIAP.

The webinar will answer the following questions:

  • What is an engagement narrative?

  • What do engagement indicators look like, how to incorporate them into a narrative and how to capture data?

  • Key components of approaches to impact

  • What does good evidence look like

Delivered in a convenient and concise format, the presentation will leave you better equipped to identify impact in research.

Who should attend?

· Researchers looking to submit impact case studies or impact narratives to funders

· REF Managers, Impact Officers, Research Support Officers

· Heads of academic departments seeking to understand the impact in their departments

Since 2010, Vertigo Ventures has been working with organisations to identify, capture and report the impact of their research projects to funders to secure funding. Vertigo Ventures worked with leading UK universities to prepare for the UK REF 2014 and the Australia team has been working with Australian and New Zealand researchers on engagement.

In 2014, Vertigo Ventures launched VV-Impact Tracker with UK institutions to help researchers and higher education institutions to identify, store, validate, and organise impact information and evidence from funded and non-funded projects. VV-Impact Tracker provides a taxonomy and systematic workflow that contextualises research project information with impact data to provide a compelling narrative about research use, reach and significance, and produces clean data for reporting purposes.

By the end of the webinar attendees will:

  • Have a clear understanding of what research engagement is

  • Understand what actions can be taken now to best prepare for future research assessments

  • Know how to structure an excellent engagement narrative and approach to impact

  • Understand key information requirements for excellent submissions

Once you have registered for the webinar and subject to eligibility, dial-in details will be sent to your email two days ahead of the webinar.
