SAVE THE DATE! Research Impact Network Event will take place on Thursday 30th April 2015

Research Impact Network

The Research Impact Network has some exciting news will shortly be opening for registrations for this year’s Research Impact Network event, which will be taking place once again at the University of Warwick on Thursday 30th April.

Our focal point this year will be what we can learn from the REF results about what world-leading impact looks like and what that means for those of us tasked with supporting it. We are delighted to announce that we have two keynote speakers; Dr Steven Hill, Head of Research Policy at HEFCE and Professor John Scott, formerly Pro-Vice Chancellor (Research) at University of Plymouth and Chair of the Sociology Sub-Panel for REF 2014.

We will provide an update on some work that we are doing around ‘Research Impact Support in UK Universities’ – a project which is looking at how the role of ‘Impact Officer’ or equivalent in Universities is changing.  We will have more news on this project shortly!

This event is also a platform for you to run your own sessions, based on issues which are pertinent to you….essentially we provide you with the room, resources and catering – you provide the topic!  If you’re interested in running a session please do get in touch with us as soon as possible by sending an e-mail to v.r.littlewood@warwick.ac.uk
