Research Impact: Assessing the Societal Benefits of Research

This elective is delivered over three (3) partial days:

Participants are required to attend all three (3) sessions.

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 elective, delivered over 3 partial days, 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. It will also include an overview of recent Australian discussion papers and impact assessment in the UK's 2021 REF.
