Impact Plans have been an important feature of research practice, particularly around funding, assessment, and personal motivation.
An Impact Plan can enable us to look ahead at the potentialities of how our research can translate into societal benefit or to inject change in the economy, health sector, public policy, quality of life, beyond academia. Elements has now added the ability to construct impact plans and link them to your research output. This workshop invites researchers at all career stages to come along and draw up a plan of their impact “journey” i.e. how impact is/will be driven by your research and is going to make a difference. Bring a laptop and we will show you how to interactively enter your new impact plan into elements and start tracking your impact. A few things to consider would be: a) drawing logical relationships with “stakeholders”/end users to deliver your desired impact; b) identify and integrate activities to facilitate impact; c) determine evidence emerging from the activities and d) identify barriers to achieving desired goals and possible solutions. At the end of the session, there will be an opportunity to share your impact plans with the participants should you wish to do so.
