Impact became an integral part of the REF submission in 2014, and is likely to play an increasingly significant part of the exercise in future years. This session will provide a brief introduction to the Research Excellence Framework (REF) and explore the impact element of the submission.
We will consider how impact is defined for the purposes of the REF, what a good impact case study looks like (and what a bad one features), how impact case studies are developed throughout the research lifecycle and what you need to think about ahead of the next REF submission.
The aims & objectives of this session are:
- Through this workshop, you will have the opportunity to examine the extent to which you are in a position to develop an impact case study for the REF and explore how you can develop the impact of your research to ensure a strong submission for the next exercise.
This will be the last ‘Introduction to the REF’ session that will be held in this REF cycle. It’s a great opportunity to learn about (or refresh your knowledge of) impact, case studies, the REF and ask our external impact consultant Saskia Gent any questions.
The session is taking place at Talbot, 2pm – 4pm on Thursday. Book your place using the link below (per all RKEDF sessions, HoD approval will be required).
