The impact agenda set out by REF and the Research Councils poses significant challenges for academia. However, it also provides a potent opportunity to broaden the funding pool. The aim of this workshop is to describe and demonstrate how directing research towards impact delivery can yield new streams of funding and add value to research. The workshop will be led by Idox with guest speaker Dr Karl Smith from London South Bank University. Dr Smith has extensive experience in research project management and applying to and delivering on a number of EU and UK funded projects. He’s expert in navigating the funding landscape, especially: how to access the right funds, from the right source, to support work with real-world impact. In his capacity as Research Impact Manager, he recognises that key to impact is knowledge translation, which is often dependent upon sourcing funding from industry to enable the successful commercialisation of a product or spin-out. The workshop will provide to attendees engaged with research funding and demonstrating impact the opportunity to share best practice tips and advice on the process of obtaining research funding, particularly from industry and other external sources, for knowledge translation and impact maximisation.
