PD Sessions @ Zoom: Impact: the stuff that dreams are made of

PD Sessions @ Zoom

Research impact case studies provide a powerful tool for communicating the public benefits that arise from investing in research. However, when research organisations communicate in this way they do more than just reveal the benefits arising from their own work. Impact case studies – at the most basic level – communicate that ‘research leads to benefits’, and this type of messaging benefits the entire research sector.

Within this overarching messaging, case studies can communicate other important messages. These include that: producing impacts is difficult but can solve important problems, impact requires collaboration, a strong innovation system and a diversity of contributors, impact takes time and consistent funding.
