Research Impact Network Event April 2015 – ‘The Aftermath’

A big thank you to those of you who attended the recent Research Impact Network Event on 30th April at the University of Warwick.

We’re busy getting to grips with the mountains of post-it notes, flipcharts and focus group notes that emerged from the event and we will be crafting them into a report of the day, building on our research project: “After the REF: Research Impact Support in Universities” for which the presentation given by Becky Steliaros and Sarah Gilmore is available here
