This enabled research staff to engage in a tailored programme of activities around their research impact needs and interests.

Making an Impact 2019

Making an Impact 2019 provided a vast array of activities for the wider research community to engage with. The programme was built around a Making an Impact 2019 Framework that helped participants to build a tailored experience based on their own research impact needs, ambitions and interests.
