Make your impact - a training opportunity to develop the personal, societal and commercial impact of your research

(14 November 2019)

While we count down to welcoming academics from four North East universities to November’s ACTION for Impact course, applications are now open for February’s course. If you want to make a positive change in society by actively applying your research skills and knowledge, find out more and apply by 10 January 2020. ACTION for Impact is an exciting training opportunity for academics at Northern Accelerator universities, enabling them to develop the personal, societal and commercial impact of their research. Working with world-class facilitators and experts in researcher development, you’ll develop an innovative mind-set and enterprising approach, within a multidisciplinary cohort.

This established programme, delivered by Newcastle University, is available to researchers at Durham, Newcastle, Northumbria and Sunderland universities, across all disciplines.

ACTION for Impact is primarily aimed at early career researchers and postgraduate researchers, however it is open to any academic with an interest in developing the skills to realise impact from their research.

Places are available for the next course which will run from 10-12 February at Slaley Hall in Northumberland. Visit Northern Accelerator’s website to find out more and apply by 10 January 2020.
