Making an Impact 2020 Programme

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


The Making an Impact 2020 Framework helps participants to build a tailored experience during the weeks of Making an Impact 2020 based on their own research impact needs, ambitions and interests.


The opportunities offered support in building skills, knowledge and expertise, with an engaging mix of workshops, seminars, panel discussions and bootcamps.

For each session participants have registered for joining instructions will be emailed to them, via the email registered with, one hour before the session begins.
