Managing Public Engagement with ImpactTracker

Mar 14, 2022 | Blog, Public Engagement

Public engagement now plays a vital role in many higher education frameworks.

This includes the KEF, in which it contributes to two of the seven constituent perspectives, and national assessments such as the REF, in which it represents vital activities that contribute to social, economic and environmental impact – and ultimately help determine the amount of funding available.

Impact and public engagement are then becoming increasingly intertwined; however these are frequently managed by separate teams even when many activities and data sets overlap.

Using ImpactTracker, you and your teams are able to manage all public engagement activities alongside impact measurement and reporting in a single centralised portal. Easily log stakeholder, activity, audience and other information alongside all other impact-based data.

Specific, granular data, including age, gender, disability and ethnicity, is logged against relevant projects together with all supporting evidence, making it easy to repurpose information for a wide range of audiences and formats – whether those are public engagement narratives, impact case studies or custom submissions

And by sharing access across organisations, you can make it much easier for teams that might otherwise be working in silos – for example, public engagement units and impact managers within the central research officer – to work together on the same relevant projects, increasing efficiency and accuracy.
