Research engagement and impact

Research impact is the contribution that research makes to the economy, society and environment, beyond the contribution to academic research (EI 2018 Framework).

The ARC assessment of engagement and impact: 

  • examines how universities are translating their research into broader societal benefits
  • encourages greater collaboration between universities and research end-users.

See research engagement and impact on the UOW Intranet for more information.

Talk to your Subject Librarian to see how we can help you discover evidence to support the real world impact of your research.

Useful UOW resources for gathering evidence to support research impact claims include:

A-Z databases |  A-Z journals |  Catalogue |  Learning Co-Op

Opening hours |  Printing, copying & scanning |  Services for students |  Subject readings
