The University’s draft Research Impact Strategy Green Paper is now open for consultation. The Paper, prepared by the Research Engagement and Impact Strategy Working Group, proposes a suite of 19 recommendations to strengthen and grow our support for research impact.

The recommendations include:
– A broad and inclusive new definition of research impact
– A support structure that emphasises researcher development and learning
– Explicit recognition of impact within career development and promotion pathways
– Impact champions embedded within disciplines to provide appropriate peer support

The consultation period will run until 7 April 2019. Submissions on any aspect of the Research Impact Strategy Green Paper will be welcomed from the broader campus community via online survey (https://uow.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_byE7AURPO32y7VH). The Green Paper will be available throughout the consultation period online, and forums will be held to invite feedback and discussion.
