Greenhalgh, who was on the main Medicine panel in the 2014 REF and is on the sub-panel for Primary Care for the 2021 REF; she has extensive experience in both writing and assessing impact case studies.

In the 2021 Research Excellence Framework, 25% of the total funding allocation will be for impact case studies (up from 20% in 2014). It is likely that our Department will need to produce between 6 and 8 of these, so we need to develop at least 12.

Impact means the positive effects that your research has had BEYOND academia – in the NHS, policy and wider society. We know from the 2014 REF that the best impact case studies a) are based on research that began several years ago (so it has had time to have some wider impact); b) tell a compelling story of what research was done, why the topic matters and what good came of it; c) are backed up with robust data outside academia (ideally, an auditable reduction in mortality!).

This seminar will offer hands-on approach to developing and refining your impact case study. It will be led by Trish Greenhalgh, who was on the main Medicine panel in the 2014 REF and is on the sub-panel for Primary Care for the 2021 REF; she has extensive experience in both writing and assessing impact case studies.   

 

If you would like to attend, please bring more than one member of your research unit and sit together, so you can discuss YOUR case study together. Bring an outline of your case study (ideally written down, but it can be in your head), as follows:

 

  • What was the underpinning research and why did it matter?
  • What was the impact?
  • How did you (or will you) measure the different kinds of impact?
  • How will you demonstrate attribution (i.e. that the changes you claim are actually cause by your research, and wouldn’t have happened anyway)?
  • How will you demonstrate reach (i.e. that your research had impact across many different settings and preferably around the world)?

 

Be prepared to share a SHORT verbal account of your work with other groups!
