We are delighted to announce that our fourth ACU Ambassadors Summit - Creating and assessing research impact – will be be held on 7 October 2021.
The summit will provide an opportunity to hear from experts in the area of research impact. Dr David Phipps from York University in Canada and Dr Julie Bayley from Lincoln University in the UK will share insights and key tools for assessing the wider impact of your university’s research on society.
Across the Commonwealth, the importance of assessing the impact research has on wider society and the world at large is growing significantly - especially within the framework of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
This is a great opportunity to connect and learn from staff at other universities on creating and assessing research impact.
To accommodate different time zones, two 90-minute summits will be held via Zoom on 7 October. Please register for one of the following sessions by Friday 24 September at 23:59:
- 07:00 – 08:30 UTC, 7 October featuring Dr Julie Bayley
- 14:00 – 15:30 UTC, 7 October featuring Dr David Phipps
