Taryn Murray

Research Engagement & Impact Coordinator


I have a degree in English, Politics and Classics and an MBA, and prior to this role I worked in project management and consulting roles helping third sector and private sector organisations grow, as well as teaching.

My role involves looking after the ESRC Impact Acceleration Account funding, the purpose of which is to accelerate the impact of social science research. I also work with colleagues in Edinburgh Innovations, the Edinburgh Futures Institute and individual schools/institutes to foster external engagement. Essentially, in my role I seek to support bridging the gap between academic and real world impact.
