Event description


Developing impact case studies is a requirement for ERA pilot, ERA 2018 and UK REF 2020, understanding what makes a good impact case study is key to a successful submission.

This one-hour intensive session is aimed at supporting those new to writing impact case studies. Using our experience of working with universities to write impact case studies and delivering a workshop on behalf of HEFCE for the REF 2014 Main Panel Chairs looking specifically at this subject, this session will utilise these reflections and learnings to share insight for those currently developing impact case studies.

The webinar will answer the following questions:

  • What is an impact case study?

  • What lessons can be learnt from the process of developing impact case studies?

  • How to develop excellent (evidence based) impact narratives

  • Feedback from reviewers for future assessment exercises

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 impact is

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

  • Know how to strucutre an excellent impact case study

  • Understand key information requirements for excellent impact case studies
