Government research councils and other funding bodies increasingly have expectations that the research they fund will deliver economic, social or cultural impact as well as academic reach. Interdisciplinarity is increasingly considered as a means to facilitate impact. This workshop will be an opportunity for you to explore ways in which your research could have an impact beyond your field of study and outside academia. You will have the chance to explore how to achieve different kinds impact (from public engagement through to policy) through four workshop sessions run by experts in their fields. Our workshops will be run by Dr Dane Comerford (Cambridge University’s Acting Head of Public Engagement), Barney Brown (Cambridge University’s Digital Communications Manager), Gill Luff (Cambridge University’s Brand Manager), and Ben Earley (Research Assistant, Centre for Science and Policy).

There will also be a chance to network with like-minded students coming from a range of disciplines within the Cambridge Language Sciences and ESRC DTC over wine and nibbles.
