Our Impact Strategy sets out how we will ensure that the research we do makes a difference beyond academia. It celebrates our current strengths and acknowledges where we need to improve, and says how we will support our academics to make a lasting, meaningful impact on our world. This means ensuring that we understand what impact is, embedding it in our research, providing the resources we need to create impact, adjusting the way we work, and developing and nurturing our impact makers – our staff. Our understanding and measurement of impact is guided by the Research Excellence Framework, but we are driven to achieve impact for its own sake, and not only to develop outstanding impact case studies. Our motto is impact is impact.
