Making an Impact 2019: 13 May to 28 June

Making an Impact 2019

Making an Impact 2019 aims to provide rich, varied and high-quality development opportunities for researchers, academics and research-related professional services staff at all stages of their career with opportunities offered across all Faculties.

A mix of external and internal speakers and facilitators will engage colleagues from the University in thinking about research impact – how it can be conceptualised, enriched, supported and sustained.

Visit the Making an Impact 2019 Framework to learn how you can build a tailored experience during these weeks based on your own research impact needs, ambitions and interests.
