Abstract

Research Councils UK (RCUK) defines research impact as 'the demonstrable contribution that excellent research makes to society and the economy'. At Bournemouth University (BU) we actively support our doctoral students to understand what constitutes impact and how their research can benefit society. However, tangible measures for non-academic impact are not easily articulated, particularly for doctoral students whose research is predominantly inward facing. We have initiated a pilot study to investigate doctoral students’ attitudes to research impact (both academic and non-academic) to identify how we can best support and facilitate individuals in maximising the reach and impact of their research.
