Building Impact Momentum Programme (April – July) applications are open

The first full iteration of the Building Impact Momentum programme is being launched by OD&PL in April 2021, following a successful pilot in late 2020 and early 2021.

The programme takes participants through a process that starts with their initial research ideas and helps them to develop concrete ideas for impact and activities to achieve it. These could be applied within their current research project or written into a potential grant application.

It will be led by Drs Ged Hall and Jim Baxter and Ruth Lawford-Rolfe (School of Earth and Environment) with contributions from the rest of the University’s impact community.

The Building Impact Momentum programme has space for 15 researchers and is made up of 6 webinars, additional reading, partner work and impact practice. You will be asked for formative evaluation, during the programme, and a full summative evaluation at the end.

It is open to research staff, academic staff and professional support staff. If you are a member of professional support staff, you must have a live research project or grant application that you are supporting that you can work on during this programme.

Further details and an expression of interest form can be found in this Sway: https://sway.office.com/LyTrQ9urEi9jZpX4?ref=Link.

The deadline for expressing interest is 5 pm on 29 March 2021.
