Impact Statements: Guidance
Impact Plans: Pathways to Impact
The Research Councils want to actively encourage researchers to be involved in thinking about how they will achieve excellence with impact and to explore the pathways for realising the impact.
The implementation of Academic Beneficiaries, Impact Summaries and Pathways to Impact (formerly known as Impact Plan) within the Research Council application and assessment process aims to aid this.
RCUK have developed a toolkit about Impact Plans and now provide a single point of access to Research Councils UK (RCUK) guidance and resources for completing the Research Councils Je-S application form and understanding the pathways towards economic and societal impacts.
