The way we understand and measure our impact is guided by the Research Excellence Framework. But we we not only want to make outstanding impact case studies, we believe in the importance of impact for its own sake. Our motto is impact is impact.
The University's impact strategy explains how we will make sure our research makes a difference in the world. In looks at the things we're good at right now and considers which areas we could do better in. It also explains how we're supporting our academics in their research. That means making sure we understand what we mean by impact and build it into all of our research. It also means making sure our researchers have the tools they need, thinking about the way we work and investing in our staff.
