REF: routes to impact

Thursday, May 26, 2016 - 17:30 to 20:00
Manson Lecture Theatre, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine


This event took place on 26 May 2016

This event, “REF: routes to impact”, aimed to raise awareness among academic members of the multiple routes to impact their research can have. The aim of the evening was to let researchers consider the numerous ways that research can have an impact within an international development context.
The evening hosted insights from UKCDS, who commissioned the Policy Institute at King's College London to produce an analysis of the international development-related impact case studies, examples of pathways to impact from academics who submitted in the REF 2014 process, and from one of the REF panel assessors.
