We will be running a series of impact events during w/c 27th March, as we are joined by two experts from the sector.

Dr David Phipps is the Assistant Vice President Research Strategy & Impact at York University (Toronto) and an international knowledge mobilisation/exchange specialist. He is also director of Research Impact Canada, a collaborative network of 20+ Canadian (and other nations) universities, and works globally including on the advisory boards for various impact assessment initiatives.

Dr Mark Taylor is Head of Strategic Partnerships for the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR), and previously NIHR Head of Impact. Prior to his role at NIHR, Mark worked as a researcher, in tech transfer, as a venture capitalist and manager of Biomedical Research Centre. Mark is also a patient advocate and involved in a number of initiatives on measuring impact from the patient perspective. 

The week kicks off with a free half day Impact Literacy conference (Monday 27th March, 12-6). The event focuses on the Why, What, How and Who of impact, and how we can drive meaningful change whilst maintaining healthy individual and institutional practices. Featuring Dr David Phipps (Research Impact Canada), Vicky Williams (CEO, Emerald) and a host of other speakers, the event concludes with a pre-launch of Dr Julie Bayley’s new book Creating Meaningful Impact: The Essential Guide to Developing an Impact-Literate Mindset.
