Do you want to document the societal impacts and benefits of research, engagement, and expertise? Join us for this session where you’ll learn about the Co-produced Pathway to Impact and explore a tool to write impact and engagement case studies. This tool features a stakeholder interview guide and a case study template that reflects contributions of academic and non-academic partners.

Map your pathway from research to impact:
Understand contribution analysis and how it informs a semi-structured interview guide to collect the evidence of impact retrospectively but also throughout the research to impact journey.  Understand what is needed to draft a case study of your research impact

The tool is available in English and French and is the subject of a book chapter attached and referenced below. There will be a learning part and a working part. If you wish to stay for the working part of the session please come prepared to think about a research project you are involved with or you supported.
