The word ‘impact’ is everywhere we turn, but what does it mean for you and your research? And what does it take to make a difference in the world outside academia?
University of Oxford, the Open University, Oxford Brookes and Reading Universities jointly hosted a conference on 19 April 2018 at St Anne’s College, Oxford on the topic of research impact, open to members of the four host universities.
This free one-day conference aimed to examine these questions and more. The conference celebrated engaged and impactful research in the social sciences, and provided inspiration and support for researchers hoping to make a difference through their work.
The conference was aimed at researchers of all career stages (including DPhil/PhD students, research staff and academics) and the professional colleagues who support them. The programme comprised a mixture of invited external speakers and session leaders, contributors from the four host universities and external non-academic partner organisations.
This event was free to attend and was brought to you through the generous support of the University of Oxford ESRC Impact Acceleration Account with in kind support from the four partner universities.
