WRIHW Early Career Researcher Impact in Research Event

26th February 2018, 12:00 to 14:00, Collier Room, St Hild & St Bede College, Leazes Road, Durham, Dr Victoria Money, Senior Impact and Engagement Manager

To celebrate the Wolfson Research Institute for Health and Wellbeing moving into its 16th year and in recognition of the importance of Early Career Researchers (ECRs) from all universities in the growth and sustainability of health and well-being research, The Wolfson ECR Committee are hosting our second ECR event on the 26th February 2018. The ECR Impact in Research Event considers impact in research, the implications this has for contributions to theory, society and the economy and the importance of generating this in our research.

We seek to help ECRs make sense of what 'impact' means in terms of their own research and how they might demonstrate impact as an outcome of their research projects. The event draws on the personal experiences of an esteemed researcher from Durham University who will share her experience of evidencing impact in her own research as an ECR which she has developed throughout her academic career.

The event welcomes Dr Victoria Money who completed her PhD studies in chemical crystallography under the supervision of Prof. Judith Howard at Durham University in 2004. She then moved into the area of protein crystallography working with Prof. Gideon Davies at the York Structural Biology Laboratory. In 2006 she was awarded a European Molecular Biology Organisation Long-Term Fellowship and spent two years in Auckland, New Zealand working in the laboratory of Prof. Ted Baker studying membrane proteins from Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Since her return to the UK and Durham in 2008, Victoria has worked on a variety of projects and in 2010 was awarded a Royal Society University Research Fellowship.

In her current role as Senior Impact and Engagement Manager in the Research and Innovation Services (RIS), Dr Money provides support for research impact, working with academics across Durham University to support the opportunities for their research to have impact and preparing academics for REF2021.

Dr Money’s own career is testament to the value of demonstrating impact in our research and the importance of impact to research careers in their early stages and throughout. She will share her insight into the rewards of evidencing impact in research and the challenges that ECRs may face and how those challenges can be overcome.

We will begin by hearing and drawing upon Dr Money's insights on impact in research followed by lunch where we encourage you to informally network with your peers. The collaborative nature of this event opens up the doors of the WRIHW to ECRs from all North East universities in recognition that impact in research reaches beyond the boundaries of our own institution.

Where & when?

The ECR Impact event will be hosted in the Collier Room, St Hild and St Bede College, Durham University, Leazes Road, Durham on the 26th February from 12pm - 2pm. We ask that you arrive for 12.00pm to enable the talk to start on time at 12.15pm.
