The Impact, Exchange and Making a Difference (IEMD) conference will take a two-pronged approach to the question of academic impact; the morning session will provide a forum to discuss and refine academic understandings of impact, asking where, how and why should academics generate impact and policy relevant research, and how can such impact be measured, with particular reference to what lessons could be learnt from the private and third sectors. The afternoon session will have a more practical focus, bringing Academics and Doctoral Researchers together with business and third sector representatives in workshops to facilitate mutual learning about impact and collaborative working practices.
The conference is FREE for delegates to attend.
Refreshments will be available throughout the day, lunch and drinks and nibbles at the end of the programme will all be provided free of charge.
