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 https://delresimpactjun15.eventbrite.co.uk
“How can your research have impact?” will be held on Wednesday, 8 January 2014 from 11:00 to 13:00 in C109, Cottesbrooke, Park Campus. A free lunch is included!
Katie Jones will examine research ‘impact’ in the context of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) and will use impact case studies in order to formulate discussion around the topic.
The workshop is for researchers at the University of Northampton who have just completed, or are currently studying for, a doctorate, or for research staff in the early stages of their career.
