This event will focus on research impact, an area that has received increasing attention by governments, funding agencies and university researchers but, at the same time, is leaving researchers (especially early career) with questions and challenges.

The purpose of the conference is to bring together national and international researchers from a range of disciplines, who are interested in reflecting on and expanding their own research impact.
