The Research Impact Sub-group provides a forum to bring together a range of existing activities across the University.
Their work is split across five major areas.

For RCUK Research Outputs System and future REFs; capturing data now and onwards to be able to demonstrate non-academic impact.
Leads: Katy McKen, Chris Brace, Dylan Thompson
Enhancing research impact for Research Council Pathways to Impact
To meet Research Council requirements and ensure that all academics are confident in completing their Pathways to Impact statements and are maximising the potential benefits to the University.
Leads: Denise Cooke, Chick Wilson, John Hudson
Enhancing research impact through public engagement
To ensure that public engagement is embedded with research as appropriate and that data is recorded on public engagement activities.
Leads: Joanna Coleman, Hanna Diamond, Rob Briner
Impact through publications: improving citations

Impact through making research visible
To ensure that we promote our research effectively (on webpages, short films, in the media etc.) and we provide appropriate media training.
