Background

I help external organisations link up with researchers with relevant expertise, and I support them finding opportunities and funding to work with our researchers. Talk to me if you would like to:

  • Find an academic collaborator or consultant in one of our subject areas (Philosophy/ Psychology/ Linguistics);
  • Find out more about the research in a particular area, or get more information about a specific research project;
  • Get help with funding applications in order to work with one of our researchers;
  • Advertise an opportunity for researchers to engage with people outside the university

  

I support researchers to share their research with people outside academia, and help make sure their research is used to improve society. Talk to me if you would like to:

  • Find out what knowledge exchange and impact are and why they matter;
  • Think about who might be interested in or find your research useful, and how you can reach them;
  • Get funding (including help with applications) to share your research or to work with external partners (e.g. in health, education, policy, business, arts and culture);
  • Design an activity (e.g. festival, CPD training, workshop) to share your research, including help with costings and evaluation;
  • Discuss impact or public engagement for your research applications, including feedback and advice on Pathways to Impact;
  • Find out about resources or training opportunities;
  • Get help prioritising - which activities are most likely to help you achieve your aims?;
  • Write a REF impact case study ;-)
