The Impact Agenda - an ESRC-funded seminar series
Seminar 6: Making an impact
Thursday 24th May 2012
St Hugh's College, University of Oxford
Lead: Peter Halfpenny, Sociology, Manchester and Celia Russell, Mimas, Manchester
This seminar is part of the ESRC-funded methods@manchester seminar series on the Impact Agenda.
The series adopts an interdisciplinary perspective to examine and clarify the concept of 'impact' in the context of academic research in the humanities and social science. The aim is to identify the processes that influence impact and explore mechanisms that maximise it.
Morning: Academics who have made an impact will describe this impact, explain how it came about, and draw out any general lessons about how to create impact. Speakers include Andrew Dilnot, University of Oxford, Pete Alcock, Professor of Social Policy and Director of the ESRC-OST-Barrow Cadbury Trust Third Sector Research Centre, and Pete Edwards, Technical Director, RCUK dot.rural Digital Economy Hub and Director, PolicyGrid Digital Social Research Node, University of Aberdeen.
Afternoon: A workshop for junior researchers/PhD students
Learn how to produce an impact plan and see demonstrations of tools and techniques designed to improve your own personal research impact.
