Target Audience

This one-day workshop is an ARMA ‘good practice exchange’ event to support impact, and is aimed at research managers with more experience and/or responsibility in delivering the impact agenda.

With rules now known for REF 2021, and with the funding environment ever more competitive, it is essential that impact be embedded into research management and institutional processes. However, delivering impact remains challenging and with no ‘one size fits all’ approach, it can be difficult for institutions to determine the most effective provision for their specific context.

In this interactive workshop, delegates will hear from a range of speakers offering differing experiences and insights into impact. Talks will consider: strengthening submissions to REF 2021, institutional impact ‘health checks’, building and connecting impact skills within an institution, and understanding the (dis)connections between policy makers and academics views of impact. Participants will have the opportunity to network and share practice with peers, and consider how to strengthen provision within their own institution.

Aims and Objectives

At the end of the session attendees will:

  • Develop deeper understanding of sector good practice to address challenges in delivering impact
  • Consider strategic and pragmatic approaches to strengthening impact for REF and funding bids
  • Consider how approaches within the sector can be translated back into their home institution

E-delegate Packs

As part of your ARMA delegate experience, we like to give you a pack of everything you will need for your training event. A couple of days prior to the workshop you will be attending, we will send you an information pack about ARMA, a programme for you to print out for the day and a delegate list of your fellow attendees. You may also receive presentations prior to the event if our speakers consent to this, however, this is not guaranteed due to the nature of each workshop.

You can find all other information on your speakers, the venue and what you will come away with from our website.
