Research with Impact

Society, government and funding bodies are placing increasing importance on understanding the impact research has outside of academia. Many funders require that pathways to impact are considered and resourced at the proposal-writing phase, where researchers are required to communicate a clear plan to maximise the changes and benefits arising from their research in wider society. Consequently, where appropriate, the co-production of research with end users and potential beneficiaries is increasingly regarded as good practice in relation to generating impact.

Bangor University aims to combine knowledge creation of international excellence with innovation, to ensure our research leads to economic, societal and cultural advancements. The following web resource provides impact information and guidance to support the design and delivery of activities that can lead to impact, and tools for tracking and communicating your impact to a range of audiences – including the Research Excellence Framework (REF) panels and your Personal Development Review (PDR) panel.

The University’s approach to research impact, documents how Research with Impact is supported and acknowledged across the institution.

You can also find recent examples of how our research has had impact on the world across a range of subject areas.
