Fast Track Research Impact Workshop
Registration for the full day workshop has SOLD OUT. People working in research management are invited to attend the special closed session in the afternoon (details below).
The program will give you everything you need to support real-world impacts from your institution’s research. You will leave with practical tools you can use immediately. The training is based on the latest research evidence and takes a unique relational approach to deliver wide-reaching and lasting impacts. In the afternoon, you will learn more about writing impact case studies for engagement and impact and creating an impact culture that motivates and supports colleagues to generate impact.
Key benefits:
  • Learn about evidence-based principles for delivering research impact
  • Discover easy and quick-to-use templates you can use immediately to:
    • Prioritise stakeholders and publics to engage with first
    • Create a powerful impact plan that will guarantee your institution’s research makes a difference without wasting time
  • Learn how to write more competitive impact sections in grant proposals, including forward-looking impact plans and constructing an evidence-based impact track record
  • Design and facilitate meetings and workshops with stakeholders and publics: discover tools that will empower you to deal with the most challenging situations and individuals and lead events that everyone enjoys
  • Understand the power and the pitfalls of using social media professionally, and find out how researchers can become influential and drive research impacts in this space (suitable for experts, novices and those who have never used social media professionally)
  • Learn how to get research into policy, wherever you work in the world, by building trust, working with intermediaries and designing effective policy briefs
