Is this course right for me?

Target Audience: Academic staff members in Faculty of Science

Part of UKRI research applications involves a communication of the likely impact that piece of research could have in the shape of a pathways to impact document. These are assessed as secondary criteria in the peer review process and could make or break funding decisions at panel.  Yet it is often still part of an application researchers struggle with – this session aims to demystify what funders are looking for and attendees should leave with a better understanding of what is required.

The session will cover:

·        What funders are looking for from research impact;

·        How to construct a good pathways to impact document that reflects your mode of research;

·        What reviewers look for in a pathways to impact document – and how you can ensure yours meets the criteria

The session will be led by Dr John Liggat, Vice Dean Knowledge Exchange
