Planning a pathway to impact
Come with an idea, leave with a pathway to research impact.
Want an easier way to manage and plan for the impact of your research? There is an increasing number of research funders requesting translation elements and wanting greater impact from the work that gets funded.
This full-day workshop will enhance your chances of translation and research impact through planning. During the session, you will consider possible collaborations, avenues and tools for dissemination, and strategies to evaluate your impact creation goals. We will work through how translation elements can be embedded in your current project or the planning of a new project or grant proposal.
This is not just another workshop where you sit, listen and leave! This is an activity-packed workshop that involves individual thinking, planning, discussing your strategies and getting an outcome before you leave the room. The session, designed for researchers and research support staff, will guide you through the process of developing your pathway to impact. We will determine the stakeholders required, strategies to gain access to the right people, managing your stakeholder relationships, dissemination and translation activities, and the creation of the indicators of impact for your project. Come with your idea, leave with an impact pathway or plan, and get follow-up support included.
This workshop is aimed at researchers, research leaders and administrators that are looking to develop stronger links to industry and other external stakeholders. It will help you plan your research pathway for optimum impacts.
– The system of how to translate your work
– Develop your own pathway to research impact
– Set your project or program goals and strategies to achieve them
– Learn how to identify, communicate and grow your network of stakeholders
– & much more
Walk away with:
– Real insights into what you need to do to succeed
– A real & raw look into what it takes to plan for research impact
– A strategy to get to research impact
– Resources including a handouts and slides
– 20-minute individual follow-up perfection session.
Leave us your details so we can tell you when we will be running a workshop near you. We will never give your details to anyone and we promise not to send you endless information!
To examine our performance (impact), and to provide feedback regarding the value of the workshop to the individual and their organisation.
All workshop participants get access to the Academy Membership for six months.
Handouts, activity sheets and information. Participants will have a valuable resource to refer back to as they implement their new knowledge.
All workshops include a follow-up coaching session with each participant to cover any questions and concerns and to facilitate the implementation process.
Participants will use action items developed during the workshop to develop a purposeful and strategic plan. We make sure that time out for this workshop is not wasted but instead leveraged.
Thank you, I can highly recommend this course, it provides an excellent roadmap, with practical and constructive advice
This research impact workshop is enlightening, transformative and practical for planning and writing a highly competitive and stringent grant application. It has helped me think about my work from multiple perspectives and bring, what seemed like disparate parts, together to identify that my early career research has impact on the broader world.
It is amazing to see someone present so clearly on how to address applications for NHMRC – she explained the rationale for each section so nicely and will assist many in writing better quality applications.
Information will make a difference to my applications and other areas of work
I’ve never been given any training in NHMRC grant applications, so this information was all new to me and very valuable. The speaker was fantastic!
Dr. Tamika Heiden’s presentation was superb. It was such a pleasure to know what NHMRC looks for in grant applications. Moreover, she gave useful personalized tips that helped demystify the writing of impact statements.
It provides me with a big picture of how I should think about writing a grant application.
The murky and fuzzy terminology of research impact is now clear to me and it is also crystal clear the steps I need to take to try and increase the impact of my research.
The workshop gives excellent points on how to highlight the impact of our work
Great delivery, excellent content and information, engaging workshop
It was an inspiring workshop with practical examples. It made me to rethink about not only how I can create impact cases from current studies, but also how to design new research studies.
Brilliant workshop, contents were well organised and easy to understand. Great course materials, with a good amount of activities to help put knowledge to practice
The training itself helped me to understand about what impact is, how to plan for it and the different ways of capturing the impact data
I have just had my 1:1 consult with Tamika and wanted to say thank you for facilitating both the training webinar and the consultations with Research Impact Academy and Tamika. I will be finishing my PhD in the next 6-8 months and whilst at first I was hesitant to sign up, feeling like I didn’t have enough to consider or plan for, I’m so glad I did. The training itself helped me to understand about what impact is, how to plan for it and the different ways of capturing the impact data. The consultation with Tamika was brilliant- Tamika offered me so many insights about what to do with my PhD work- I had some draft ideas but now it will be more refined, and I will be able to plan for capturing the evidence of impact moving forward.
