Webinar 1 - Introduction to Impact Reporting

(90 minutes) Impact reporting is of increasing importance internationally as there is more pressure on government funds to demonstrate accountability and value for money to government and taxpayers. As such, research managers and VPs need to have a good understanding of what impact is in this context as this is a new style of reporting for research. This webinar will explore what impact reporting is and why it is gaining momentum. We will share experiences and practical examples of how organizations have been implementing impact strategies and mobilizing researchers to engage more with the impact agenda.

We recommend testing your browser as soon as possible in case you need to contact your IT department for help.
  • It is recommended that you use a PC or MAC with an updated Internet Browser.
  • Make sure you have pop-ups blockers disabled in your Internet browser settings.
  • Make sure that your internet browser is Active X enabled.
  • Wifi is not recommended. The problem with WiFi is signal strength can vary causing bandwidth to increase or decrease.
  • We recommend a wired connection. A wired connection gives a consistent signal and consistent bandwidth. A wired connection provides a better experience.
  • It's better for organizations with low bandwidth to only have the webinar running on 1 computer in a conference room than having 10 individual people running the session on 10 computers at their desks.
  • Audio (sound) is projected through your computer speakers. Be sure your computer is equipped with speakers so you can hear the presenters.
