Research Impact & Engagement

What does research impact and engagement mean and how is it supported at the University of Melbourne?

In this session we will introduce the multi-faceted framework for research impact that the UoM has begun to adopt to guide strategy and support academics. The session will include a presentation on the findings of a research project on engagement at UoM, sponsored by the Centre for the Study of Higher Education.

We will hear some inspiring examples of how impact is understood in the creative and performing arts, and discuss how to construct and narrate research stories outside of academia. Finally, the session will explore the range of supports the UoM is working on building, for academics who want to improve their research impact.
