Measuring and reporting our impact
We have a global impact
Whenever we work with a client, have a new member join, or recruit a speaker for our Summit, we give to a worthy cause. Our giving to date has focused on the sustainable development goals of Education, work & economic growth, industry, innovation and infrastructure and on reducing inequalities.
So far, we have given 4800 days of education to children in India, 252 days of computer education to Indigenous youth in Australia and provided 1140 learning tools to disadvantaged children in Kenya.
When you work with us or join us you are creating a global impact.
Reducing our environmental impact
We have reduced our use and wastage of paper by providing all our workshop resources on a reusable USB key for participants to keep. This has the added benefit of helping us provide more resources and materials to participants than if we were to print them.
Our online and free annual Research Impact Summit is a carbon neutral conference (aside from the small material infrastructure of the internet). This event has been commended for its environmental approach to sharing knowledge and has won an award for Innovation in Impact

I am excited and relieved to be successful for an NHMRC investigator award. Your session on preparing for this grant enabled me to get my head around what might be required in terms of research impact, and helped me articulate my research impact for the application. Thanks to your workshop, I learnt this important skill.
Thanks for an instructive and engaging workshop. It was really timely. I went straight to a research project planning meeting and could make suggestions to our design so we could capture metrics around impact which was great.
Really enjoyed the workshop, unfortunately I was only able to attend after morning tea, i found it was really helpful and helped me make plans to plan research with impact
I would recommend RI Academy to any researcher wanting to ensure real impact clinically or otherwise. Engage them early in your planning
We brought Tamika in to support us in commencing a Participatory Action Research project that will have high impact in CFA. Tamika has been great to work with right from the start and has given us valuable tools to create a research project that will have great impact. Through this process, we are starting our research off on a solid ground with a shared vision, smart goals and a map of our stakeholders.
KT Australia provides valuable objective opinion and guidance, enabling a more directed and cohesive application
It was great to have input from experts in how to write a research impact case for grant funding purposes. But importantly, they provided guidance as to what I need to do in the future to drive impact
KT Australia provided excellent advice and fine-tuning of impact, innovation and significance sections of grants I am leading.
“If I had done this KT Australia workshop with Tamika before embarking on my project, I would have been more successful in actually conducting knowledge translation in its true form – from dissemination to implementation in practice.”
I went from being a social media non-user to an active participant in just one day!
With a recent introduction to the concepts of KT I was excited and hopeful to be referred to Knowledge Translation Australia. I found Tamika to be a great ambassadress for the place and processes of KT in research and practice. I look forward to contributing to the ‘closing of the loop’
Thanks Tamika. I truly enjoyed this workshop and have made some relevant decisions for our research projects based on the content and ideas presented.
With the different parties involved, identifying and agreeing on a system was a challenge for us. We found that with Tamika’s assistance as a facilitator, a clear direction emerged, by questioning us and encouraging discussion therefore providing a pathway to an agreement on a system.
Tamika was able to quickly grasp what we wanted and guide us through a process to identify the key actions we needed to undertake to deliver practical impact assessment for our industry adoption and extension activities. In doing so, she had a very friendly and personable approach and was able to work comfortably with our team and appropriately challenge us where warranted.
Tamika facilitated a great workshop which provided the participants with a lot of food for thought. Researchers are often stuck in their research and grant writing bubble but Tamika’s workshop challenged how they thought about their work, interactions with industry and approach to writing grants. Feedback from the participants was very positive and I am sure they all walked away with many valuable pieces of advice and practical applications.
