Why these workshops may be important to you
The University demonstrates research excellence through rankings, awards, and publications. Now, the metrics for how we measure research excellence are expanding beyond traditional disciplinary measures to include how research benefits society. In fact, more and more funders are requiring researchers to address this impact in research proposals. If you are a leading researcher in your field, you can drive your research toward greater impact and deeper connections with communities and decision makers.
