Membership

Research Impact Academy membership is a community of practice for forward thinking researchers and research administrators who want to save time and create impact easily. Unlike other memberships, it builds your skills, supports you on your journey, and gives you access to international impact experts.

Stop us if any of this sounds familiar...

You are working on a research grant that is asking for translation or impact elements and you don’t know what to write…

You’ve spent countless hours trying to find and use planning and measurement tools, and you’re frustrated with the plethora of information containing mixed messages…

You are planning for research impact but it’s not going as well as you’d like, and you’re out of ideas for how you should proceed…

You’re struggling to stay on top of the seemingly endless list of tasks you need to handle, and you’re not sure if you’re making the right decisions

If this sounds familiar, then you already know what a minefield it can be trying to get quality advice & support

That’s what inspired a global community

We were constantly hearing stories from researchers and research support staff about how they wish they could get help, build their professional network and achieve more.

We were surprised by the numbers of research professionals that were unaware of impact happenings both locally and internationally.

Common requests and frustrations from the global community include:

  • learning more about what’s happening in other countries
  • access to information and best practices from others working in impact
  • a desire for more than just research papers, a true understanding of how to do it
  • the time to understand the complexities of impact, let alone apply it!
