SIG: Research Impact

Date & Time:

17th June 2019
15:45 - 17:00


Hall 2b

Impact is increasingly significant within the research landscape, and research managers represent the ‘frontline’ of support, strategy and expertise. The growth of the impact related roles over recent years pays testament to the relevance of impact to the Research Management community, and with new impact agendas emerging internationally it is ever more important that the Research Management community be equipped with connections and good practice to support delivery and professional development.  

The Impact Special Interest Group (SIG) represents colleagues within the research management community with a remit for, or interest in, impact. The SIG convenes annually at the main ARMA conference to provide an opportunity for colleagues to network, discuss topical issues in impact management and to share learning about delivering the impact agenda. The content of this interactive session is determined through pre-conference consultation with the community, but likely to include impact assessment, REF, impact and funding, skills development. organisational challenges and building capacity for impact. The aim is to share learning about good, bad and emerging practice, support delegates to strengthen their own and their institution’s delivery of impact, and build stronger communities of practice.
