Impact Clinic: Developing Pathways to Impact

Wed, 19 April 2017, 11:00 to 12:30

CMR14, OU, Milton Keynes

A recent exercise to identify impact needs among IDII-SRA researchers revealed that developing good pathways to impact is a key requirement for those working on bids. In response to this, and to other needs identified by the exercise, IDII will run a series of impact clinics to:

  • consult one another on impact requirements for specific projects
  • diagnose potential strengths and weaknesses in proposed impact strategies
  • jointly prescribe or explore tools and approaches for generating, sustaining, documenting and disseminating impact. 

The first clinic will focus on Developing Pathways to Impact and take the following format:

  • two or three researchers make five-minute presentations on their current proposals and ideas on pathways to impact
  • audience (who haven't previously seen the proposals) respond with quick comments and suggestions
  • panel (one member from RAS and two from IDII, all of whom have seen the proposals in detail), share their opinions
  • presenters sum up what they can take forward
  • IDII impact team conclude with date and focus of next clinic.

Proposals for the first clinic are from Dr Alex Borda-Rodriguez & Dr Philipp Horn (FASS-DPP) and Dr Sandip Hazareesingh (FASS-History).
