Research Impact

The easiest definition of 'research impact' is 'making a difference'. This generation of benefits from our research to wider society has always been a part of our mission as an institution and is a core element in our 'Research Strategy'. Our commitment to impactful research, our emphasis on early engagement and partnership-working, and the inclusion of research impact as an element in funding decisions and assessments of excellence means that we need to embed awareness, understanding and good practice into our research culture and activity across all disciplines.
