Sharing your research

Our research support networks provide guidance and services to extend the reach of your work beyond academia.

Transforming lives through research means sharing your work in many different ways. We can support you with partnership working, stakeholder engagement, publication and dissemination, to ensure you maximise your research.

Research Impact

Impact can occur in many different forms, from the preservation of cultures or habitat, to changes in law,  from how we manage the soil to the commercialisation of products. For advice and guidance on planning for impact throughout your research, including help with identifying stakeholders and capturing evidence of impact, contact the Research Impact Manager.

Partnering with others is key to maximising the impact of your research, whether through commercial returns or societal benefit. For help on partnership agreements, licensing and commercialisation of research, contact or find out more about working with industry.
