A significant part of higher education research has always been about ensuring that important messages and outcomes can reach others, so knowledge is shared and findings can be built upon. However, in 2018 the Australian Government formalised the process, holding its first national impact and engagement assessment exercise in order to understand how universities are translating their research into economic, environmental, social, cultural and other benefits. These benefits must extend beyond academic research.
Our esteemed panel will briefly describe their research trajectories and associated impact, as well as their insights into strengthening and evidencing impact and engagement.
After the conversation concludes, join us for networking over nibbles and drinks.
