European Research Impact Workshop

Designing Impact into your Research Funding Programmes

Where: Elsevier, 125 London Wall, Barbican, London EC2Y 5AS

When: Wednesday 3 May 2023

What is impact and why is it important? How can you design impact into your research funding programmes? How can you identify the best way to influence change and demonstrate your impact? Delve into these issues, and others, this May in London.

We look forward to welcoming members from European research funding organisations to connect with peers at this special Impact Workshop in May and learn about how to best design impact into research programmes.

This event is specifically for those involved in research funding, conducting research, impact management, assessing research, stakeholder engagement or communicating research impact.
