Research impact

The University’s Impact Officer supports all research impact-related activity across the University.  


Our commitment to impact

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.
