About this event

Building a healthy, impact literate culture; reflections on the challenges, opportunities and (ongoing) fascination with unicorns.

Earlier this year, UK universities submitted to the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF) cycle, a seven(ish) yearly cycle of assessment which determines allocation of Government funding for research. Since 2014 REF has required ‘impact case studies’, sets of shiny, neatly packaged stories of research led benefits, now forming 25% of the overall score.

Notwithstanding the value of bringing the value of social benefit to the fore, what has this meant for our impact culture? What messages have been cemented across the sector about what impact is and what counts? What influence has this had on how we understand impact outside the bounds of assessment? What have we learned to do, and what should we learn from?

In this talk, Dr Julie Bayley will discuss some of the challenges, sector learning, and opportunities arising from not only being (very much) ‘in’ REF, but also trying to build an institutional impact culture alongside. She’ll talk through how these experiences led to her work on Impact Literacy and Institutional health, and how these can enable a far more sustainable and meaningful approach not only in the UK but internationally.

Unicorns will feature. And possibly strip clubs.

The session will be interactive with discussion encouraged and a Q&A session to follow.

  • Date: Tuesday, 2 November
  • Time: 11.00 NZST
