It is highly debated as to what constitutes impact and remains a discussion point as to how researchers can measure and ‘predict’ research impact. However, best practice in finding effective ways of responding to this requirement is being shared, and this course has been developed to help you to unpack some of these issues and make steps to achieving research with impact.
