So you are interested in developing an impact case study? Lessons from REF2014

by Prof Vanora Hundley, Prof Alison McConnell and Prof Edwin van Teijlingen

Impact case studies have become an important part of research assessment; in REF2021 impact case studies will account for 25% of the overall score for an institution. This session will provide an overview of case studies; focusing on how to build a strong case study and, perhaps more importantly, how to avoid some of the pitfalls of REF2014. The session will draw on an example from Brunel’s submission and one from BU. The presenters aim to promote discussion on the nature of impact (REF or otherwise) and potential among FHSS academics to promote the impact of their research.
