Research impact is a hot topic in Australia right now, and there is a need to consider both impacts as the end goal, and how to measure, articulate and capture the impact that occurred from a research endeavour.

Off the back of the Research Impact Summit run in November 2016, and the subsequent international learnings, Dr Tamika Heiden is offering a workshop to the WA ARMS members to explore research impact. Tamika likes to bring a different approach to impact, borrowing from multi-sector processes this workshop will explore how best to facilitate and support impact within your institution for the current and future Engagement and Impact Assessment activities.

This interactive workshop will cover:

  • What is Research Impact?
  • The translation pathway to get to impact
  • What counts as evidence
  • How to capture and track research translation activities, supporting evidence and impact.
