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 a community of 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 impact community of practice

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 included:

  • learning more about what was 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!

  • They provided guidance as to what I need to do in the future to drive impact

    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

    KT Australia provided excellent advice and fine-tuning of impact, innovation and significance sections of grants I am leading.

  • Knowledge translation in its true form

    “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.”

    Loretta Piccenna
    National Trauma Research Institute & Monash University

  • Excellent workshop

    I went from being a social media non-user to an active participant in just one day!

    Dr Lana Williams
    Deakin University

  • Great ambassadress

    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!

    Thanks Tamika. I truly enjoyed this workshop and have made some relevant decisions for our research projects based on the content and ideas presented.

    Ana Mantilla
    Australian Catholic University

  • Great facilitation

    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.

    James Ogden Brown
    Sugar Research Australia

  • Tamika was able to quickly grasp what we wanted

    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

    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.
