Research and practice-based impact is, now more than ever, a necessary part of academic work. Making academic work useful to the world outside higher education, and, thus, demonstrating its value to the general public, is simply one component that makes up a successful academic career. Impact does not happen in a vacuum; it is the result of meaningful engagements between people and groups.
Please contact me at any stage in your work to chat about impact. Whether you are thinking about how you might build impact into a project, writing up planned impact for a bid, measure the impact that you are having, or reporting back on the impact that you have had, I am happy to support you in the process.
