Do you want to embed impact into your research practice but are unsure how to do this? This might be the course for you! There is a current opportunity for researchers at the University of Bath to attend ‘Impact Integrators’, an online, self-paced research impact training course. This is provided by Walcott Communications for the University of Bath.


What you will get access to two foundation courses:

  • Course 1: Integrating Impact into Your Everyday
  • Course 2: Integrating Impact into your Grant (Course 2 follows on from Course 1)
  • and access to two workshops to support you to complete both course 1 and course 2 in a peer learning environment

Please note, access is given to Course 1 first, and to Course 2 once you have completed 80% of Course 1. The course is reflective and is designed to help you form habits and ways of thinking about impact in relation to your own research that is applicable whatever the discipline. The goal is that by the end of both courses you will have the basics of a plan in relation to your research that you can bring to your Impact Managers to progress further. There is no marking of your work and the course is self-paced.


  • Workshop 1: Wednesday 20 September, 9.30am-12.30pm
  • Workshop 2: Wednesday 18 October, 9.30am-12.30pm

The online course materials are available until Friday 17 November 2023.


To register your interest please complete the online form by 12pm Monday 11 September 2023.

You might have to provide your University of Bath email to access the form.

The form asks for the following information:

  • Name:
  • Email:
  • Faculty/Department:
  • What does impact mean for you/your research?:
  • Reason for applying (short explanation of needs):

We will notify you by 15 September 2023.

By registering your interest, we assume that you are giving us permission to pass on your details to Walcott Communications and are committed to attend both workshops.


The course is free for up to 11 University of Bath academic staff and PhD students. The University asks that you write a short reflective account once you have completed all the elements of this training.
