The course is suitable for researchers and support staff at all career stages, whether you’re new to research impact or already have some experience. It features interactive activities and examples from a breadth of research disciplines.

The course has been specifically designed so you can dip in and out of the modules whenever it suits you, and is split into 5 modules which cover topics including planning for impact, engagement with stakeholders, and evaluating impact.
