Want to better understand and engage research users and other interested people to help you create research impact?

Come and join our founder in an interesting up-to-date approach to engaging with people to create meaningful research impact.

This one hour webinar will introduce you to the fundamentals of stakeholder engagement and help you develop skills, strategies and approaches to work with external organisations. We will walk through different types of engagement, elements within an engagement strategy, a process for identifying and selecting stakeholders, and management of the relationship throughout the project lifecycle. You will develop the skills and learn about some tools to facilitate meaningful interactions with your stakeholders so that you can open up avenue for scalable and sustainable impact from your research projects.

Knowing who to involve, when to involve them and how to engage, is vital to creating research impact. All too often we don't know where to start or can feel overwhelmed by both the number of possibilities or the daunting task of simply reaching out to make and nurture our connections with potential and existing stakeholders. These skills are a necessary element of impact creation. We see more and more emphasis on research impact, and there is an increasing need to create it and capture it. This workshop will guide you in developing a stakeholder engagement strategy with a direct line of sight to research impact.
