Impact and Engagement
For all University of Portsmouth Research and Academic Staff
The focus on demonstrating the impact of your research can seem daunting and it can be difficult to know where to start. This practical workshop focuses on finding ways to make the impact agenda work for you and your research. The workshop leads you through a series of interactive activities that get you thinking creatively about why you do your research and the difference that you want it to make to others. During the workshop you will build up a picture of the individuals, groups or entities that could benefit from your research. Strategies for actively engaging with them by positively communicating the goals and value of your research will be approached.
This workshop will enable you to:
Understand what is and is not impact from a REF perspective
Build your own ‘pathway to impact’ for your project
Identify ways to effectively connect with groups or entities to build impact
Use the impact agenda to strengthen your research profile
