Esther De Smet, senior policy advisor at Ghent University (Belgium), is visiting the University of Bath as part of a staff exchange programme. Esther has brought along a pecha kucha presentation she often uses to explain universities institutional policy on impact and the – sometimes hidden – benefits to researchers of having an impact strategy.

This event brings together all the main reasons why it is important to consider how you can have a real world impact through your research. Afterwards there is ample time to compare notes on different approaches to research policy and impact, and share the good, the bad, and the ugly from a UK and a Belgian perspective.

Lunch with Impact Workshops

This event is part of the Lunch with Impact Workshops series, funded by the University’s HEIF and EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account. The series supports staff in identifying, generating and evidencing impact from their research. Sessions are practical in nature, enabling attendees to apply the information, knowledge and tools to their own research.
