'Impact' should show quality and help to enhance the reputation of the University and the UK's attractivenes for research and innovation investment.
Specific beneficiaries might be: researchers in other disciplines; academic organisations; companies, public sector bodies and others who may use the results to their advantage; or policy makers.
