Research impact: Guidance and Resources

Research impact is a priority for universities and a key element for individuals pursuing academic careers in the current evolving HE environment.

Research & Innovation Services have refreshed their guidance and resources web pages to help you better understand impact, and plan for the potential impacts arising from your research.

You will find information on ways to engage with stakeholders and potential research beneficiaries as well as ways to track the progress and success of your impact-promoting activities.

The University’s REF web pages also provide resources for people leading or engaged in REF Impact cases studies.

If there is information you think should be added to these web pages, please get in touch with Dr Bhoomi Gor, Research Impact Officer in R&I at
