Translating Excellent Research Impact in the Social Sciences into a REF 2021 Impact Case Study @ Woodhouse Room, University House
Jan 18 @ 12:30 pm – 4:00 pm

The event, which will be hosted by Leeds Social Sciences Institute (LSSI) in collaboration with the LUBS ‘Research with Impact’ Seminar Series, will combine intellectual discussion with an opportunity for informal networking.

This interactive workshop is for staff across the social sciences at Leeds and is focused on how to translate excellent research impact into a REF impact case study across Units of Assessment in the social sciences.

It will provide participants with an opportunity to hear from ex-panel members and impact case study authors from REF 2014 about their insights and experiences assessing impact in REF 2014.

Background

A key recommendation of the Stern review was to ensure the REF could better capture the multiple and diverse pathways and mechanisms through which impact arises from a body of work, and through which real benefits to the UK and wider world are delivered.

The success of impact in 2014 was demonstrated in the subsequent evaluation activity and highlighted in Lord Stern’s review. HEFCE have taken account of Lord Stern’s suggestion (as part of Lord Stern’s independent review), that impact be ‘deepened and broadened’ and have increased the impact weighting from 20 to 25 per cent; the overall weightings of the three assessment elements in the exercise are: outputs – 60 per cent; impact – 25 per cent; environment – 15 per cent.

 Programme:

12.30 – 1pm    Buffet Lunch

1.00                Welcome and Aims – Adam Crawford, Director of LSSI

1.10                 ‘Impact in REF 2021’ – Nick Plant, Director of Research Quality and Michelle Double, Research and Innovation Services

1.30                 ‘Lessons from REF 2014 on Good Quality Impact Case Studies’ – Adam Crawford (Law sub-panel) and Richard Thorpe (Management sub-panel) plus a case study author from REF 2014 – focusing on impact  on policy and/or professional practice

2.30                 ‘Public Engagement as Impact’ – Charlotte Haigh, Public Engagement Team

3.00                 ‘Supporting Impact Case Study Authors’ – Ged Hall OD&PL, Sophia Kennedy, LSSI and Kathryn Watson, LUBS

3.30                 Discussion & Actionable Outcomes
