Developing impact within your research proposal
Research funders would like to see how your research has the potential to benefit society beyond academia, and what you intend to do to make this happen.
How to guides on engagement and impact
The funder guidance will provide detail on how they would like to see impact reflected in the application. We have created some resources that provide generic tips on how to develop engagement and impact; what costs you may include, and how to evidence impact from your work.
Crafting a pathways to impact using a theory of change approach

We have developed a toolkit to assist you in writing your pathways to impact using a theory of change approach.
