The webinar was well attended by academics from across the UK, Europe, US, Qatar,Australia and provided an opportunity to discuss the opportunities and challenges for academics to create actionable knowledge and impact in the media industries.
Dr Oliver argued that BU was well placed to advance knowledge and create social and economic impact through its Fusion Strategy. He discussed his external engagement experiences, REF2021 Impact Case Study and his recent publication on creating actionable knowledge and impact (Oliver, J.J., 2020.
