Ensuring that research has impact is becoming more and more important. Researchers at all stages of their career are already passionate about their work, and demonstrating potential or achieved impact offers us opportunities to strengthen applications for research funding and to build reputation. Often, however, an institutional focus on traditional scholarly measures of research quality, such as academic publication imperatives, draws attention away from the development of professional networks and building personal reputation.
This workshop provides the opportunity for participants to ‘share their struggles’ and their successes in relation to these particular challenges and tensions. It will provide the opportunity to learn from others and to share suggestions and information focused on creating pathways to impact that best suit different goals, interests, and contexts. Contributors will focus on issues around: building impact cases; scholarly activity as a starting point for impact; leading an impact case; network building; setting goals for policy engagement; identifying key stakeholders with interest in, or who are potential beneficiaries of, research projects; using social media to develop reputation and contacts; and the struggle to achieve impact.
By the end of the day, this process should give participants a better appreciation of the practical issues and opportunities associated with building impact pathways within their research.
This event will take place on 12 December 2018, 9:00am - 4:30pm
