Does your research make a difference? Can you articulate the impact of your research on scientific progress, economy and society?

On Tuesday 2nd June at 2pm, Dr Miggie Pickton and Nick Dimmock will examine the ways in which, as a researcher, you can reach and influence both academic and non-academic audiences. From using project plans to design impact into your research, to disseminating your research in ways which promote impact, the 2-hour workshop will allow sharing of experiences and introduce new ways to demonstrate the value of your research.

This workshop is open to all research students and early career researchers at the University of Northampton. For more information and to book a place go to
