Research into action: Learning from REF 2021

Come and join us on Tuesday 6 July from 11.15 to 13.00 for our annual celebration of research engagement and impact across the University.

Our usual Research Engagement and Impact Awards have been postponed this year because lockdown disrupted so much activity. Instead we are taking the timely opportunity to reflect on our submission to REF2021, our impact case studies, and the work of some of our Early Career Researchers.

This online celebration will feature an overview of our REF submission and its strengths and highlights from Professor Dominik Zaum, followed by presentations and discussion of best practice case studies from REF across all our research themes. There will also be a discussion of how we can support engagement and impact in future as part of the new research strategy. We will finish off with the award of the 2021 Early Career Research Output Prizes.

Book your place now at the Research Engagement and Impact online celebration. A link to log in to the event will be sent nearer the time.
