Make your impact - online training opportunity to develop the impact of your research

(29 January 2021)

Places are available to join spring’s cohort of Action for Impact, an exciting training opportunity for academics at Northern Accelerator universities, enabling them to develop the personal, societal and commercial impact of their research. If you want to make a positive change in society by actively applying your research skills and knowledge, find out more and apply by midday on 5 February 2021.

Both the format and the content of the course have been adapted to run online, with much of the learning accessible to download in your own time. Participants will then join live discussion groups once a week over a three-week period, led by 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, however it is open to any academic with an interest in developing the skills to realise impact from their research. Find out more and apply by 5 February here:
