Integrating impact and research activity

The impact of research is a prerequisite for most funding bodies. To help you to integrate impact at every stage of the research process, from conception to output, the London School of Economics has set up a fully accessible website with tools to equip you at each stage of the research process:-

Each of these stages takes the reader through:-

  • barriers
  • enablers
  • useful impact methods to integrate at the specific stage
  • useful management methods to integrate at the specific stage
  • examples

When you explore, for example, enablers to developing research ideas, you are also given sections on skills and what to measure. Some of the information may seem obvious to a seasoned researcher, but we feel it is a useful resource for everyone involved in the research process to have all the stages so clearly defined and well set out.

The website grew out of activities from the Social Care Evidence in Practice project funded by the London School of Economics and Political Science’s Higher Education Innovation Fund 5. The website itself was created with funding from, and is supported by, the Personal Social Services Research Unit and the NIHR School for Social Care Research.
