HEFCE Commissions Research on Impact Evidence
Vertigo Ventures will deliver a consultation workshop with Digital Science to contribute to research commissioned by HEFCE to develop guidance on research impact evidence.
Research assessment will continue to include a significant impact component for funders both in the European Union and the United Kingdom. Universities – and research institutes – will need to be able to articulate social and economic impact effectively and comprehensively both for such assessment and as part of wider stakeholder engagement. This research will provide a platform for stakeholders to share their experience of capturing evidence of research impact across all subjects and disciplines covering:
- Disciplinary experiences
- Impact types
- Effective impact evidence types
The invite-only, consultation workshop will be facilitated by Vertigo Ventures, with members of the Main Panels and impact managers who had hands on experience in REF2014.
