CTRIVE® 3.0 Competence development
This workshop aims to introduce researchers to the ‘Impact Agenda’: the growing demand of funding bodies (especially those channelling public money) that the research they support should benefit wider society, beyond academia. Impact can occur from research in every field. It has become conventional to categorise Impact as either ‘economic’ or ‘societal’. Some funders, at the European level, for example, have very rigid definitions of what constitutes Impact; others are willing to accept any provable benefit accruing to society outside the university sector. This workshop will help researchers to understand these definitions, to identify the potential Impact in their own work: how to plan for it, how to capture evidence of it, and how to demonstrate it for a range of purposes to different audiences.
• What is Impact and why is it important?
• How different funders define Impact.
• Examples of Impact in different disciplines.
• Planning for Impact in partnership with stakeholders.
• Demonstrating Impact and writing impact case studies.
