REF impact

When working with external organisations it is important to make them aware of the Research Excellence Framework (REF), and the potential need to write impact case studies. Organisations may be asked to support the gathering of impact for example, via data collection or engagement with their staff or clients. In addition, organisations may be contacted a number of years after the collaboration has ended, in order that the impact can be assessed once a period of time has elapsed. It is possible to consider these aspects of the relationship at the negotiation stage, and in some instances write them into any contractual agreement.
