Using research outcomes data to inform strategy and planning at a research institution
Researchfish has been collecting research outcomes data for 12 years, tracking over £50 billion worth of awards annually from 160 organisations. The data collected covers publications as well as knowledge exchange activities, collaborations, policy influences, public engagement, and other indicators relevant to pathways to impact of academic research. The depth and breadth of the data lend themselves to analysis providing insights into diverse outcomes research delivers globally. We shall present the results of our analysis to draw a unique picture of the global research landscape and increase research community’s and funders’ understanding of what drives and contributes into impact, how to communicate it outcomes of research effectively and what lies beneath related data and metrics.
We shall share lessons on how to uncover powerful stories of success to help advocacy of research funding, to increase accountability via evidence-supported reports, and improve funding allocation via strategic decision-making that draws on data from previous funding calls.
We shall also touch on using data to support REF and KEF reporting and summarise with intelligence insights, i.e. how can data be used to support reporting and what is and isn’t in the data. We shall also share RF’s insights from working with funders and how they use data and report impact and wider research outputs.
