iesResearch and Vertigo Ventures to Host Introducing Impact Skills into Research Culture Webinar

Jul 27, 2022 | Blog

iesResearch and Vertigo Ventures will host a webinar on Introducing Impact Skills into Research Culture on Wednesday 31st August at 10am HKT.

Research impact continues to grow in prominence worldwide. Initiatives such as the Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Rankings are now used as a source of international prestige by institutions that perform well, with 1524 universities around the world submitting to the 2022 edition.

Meanwhile, in countries such as Hong Kong, Australia, the UK, New Zealand and Poland, academic and research institutions are now required to demonstrate their impact beyond academia – specifically, how their work affects society, culture, the environment, the economy and more. In the UK, 6,781 impact case studies were submitted to the REF 2021 national assessment, which directly impacts the amount of funding these institutions will be able to receive.

This momentum shows no sign of slowing down, with many Asian universities featuring highly in the most recent THE Rankings.

To support Asian institutions with this upcoming new challenge, this webinar introduces attendees to real-world examples of best practice and effective strategies for embedding impact into research culture.
