Want to build networks with the private and third sectors? Keen to get your research disseminated in policy and media? Interested in producing impact with other organisations?
Barry and Paul are two final year PhD students who have for the past year been working with organisations outwith the Academy on a range of projects. Their work has included authoring a UK Parliamentary report, reviews for the British Red Cross and evaluation work with grassroots organisations. They have also made policy impact with their academic research, with both having their work informing questions raised by MSPs at First Minister’s Questions.
Barry and Paul are both from non-traditional academic backgrounds and will discuss how they have navigated ‘impact’ in the Academy and beyond.
The session will be a collaborative session. This will comprise:
– A short overview of past year in these fields
– Group work tasks
By attending, you will leave with an enhanced understanding of the policy and media landscape & how to take your research skills and apply them to other sectors.
