Government and funding organisations generally expect researchers to be aware of the potential difference their research could make to society, to be able to articulate how impacts could be generated, to consider ways of accelerating such change, and to take account of benefits resulting from their research. The Research Impact Team supports researchers by providing advice on impact idea generation, planning, execution, evidencing and reporting (such as the REF 2021).

These funding streams support activities that strengthen relationships with strategic external partners and maximise the potential for research impact in any sector with non-academic users of research.
