Engaged Researcher Online - Introduction to Impact

Tue 26 Sep 2023


This is a training for those in Arts and Humanities.

An introductory session looking at impact in the Arts and Humanities, offering a guide to the Michaelmas call-out for Impact projects from the School of Arts and Humanities.

Impact is now a requirement for numerous grant applications, the REF, and academic life in general. It can make a useful and dynamic contribution to the long term development of many academic projects as well as bringing partnerships and funding opportunities.

This session will discuss how impact is defined according to the AHRC and REF. It will also discuss previous successful impact projects, outline the connections between research and impact, funding strategies, and the differences between pathways to impact and impact objectives. Many different types of impact will be covered, including work with public policy, public engagement, the media, and commercialisation.

Target audience

PhD's, Postdocs, PEP's in Arts and Humanities


Please choose an area of your work that you feel could develop into an impact project, or a past one that would have benefited from additional funding. Be prepared to share and trouble shoot the project during the session.
