Presenter: Dr Mark Hochman, PhD, Research Management Consulting Pty Ltd.

With many calls on government’s public purse and research budgets becoming tighter, the ability to demonstrate the real-world impact of research is being seen as increasingly important. This one day elective examines the role of research managers in supporting the impact of research. 

It examines the definitions of research impact, looks in detail at impact models and pathways to impact from both the literature and practice. National research impact assessment mechanisms are discussed including the difference between impact measurement and assessment.

The workshop includes helpful information for research managers in establishing research impact tool kits and promoting impact literacy within research performing institutions.

Pre-requisites

The Winter School has no formal pre-requisites for the electives featured in the 2020 program. The electives are intended for:
