Introduction to Impact Workshop 5th February

The societal and economic impact of research is becoming increasingly important in academia, not only for REF purposes, but in funding applications. UKRI announced this week that they are removing impact pathways from their funding applications because impact should be embedded into the research process.

Together with Dr Katey Collins, Impact Champion for HSS, I am running a two hour workshop to explain what impact ‘outside of academia’ means, why it’s important, how to create pathways to impact, and how to evidence the impact your research has created.

If your research is already having an impact, the workshop will give you tools to help accelerate and capture that impact.

If you would like to attend the workshop, you can book here.

Early Career Researcher Showcase – 29th January 2020

Bookings are now open to attend the annual  BU Early Career Research Showcase on 29th January 2020.

This event is for BU ECRs to share their research with their immediate peers and other BU academics who wish to support our ECRs in their research. We will hear updates from the current holders of ACORN funding and about the progress made by two of our previous ACORN award holders, who are building their research further with applications to prestigious external funders.

The event will take place at the Lansdowne Campus with the room to be confirmed in your meeting request, which will be sent after you book your place.

Please arrive from 09:15 onwards for pre-event refreshments and prompt 10:00 start. The event is planned to close at 14:30, with refreshments provided, including lunch.

There is also the opportunity for ECRs to showcase their research via stands at the venue. If you are a BU ECR who would like to display and talk about your research with your peers, contact RKEDF@bournemouth.ac.uk now to reserve your display table. If you are not already a member, you can also use this email to request that you are added to the Early Career Researcher Network community.

Early Career Researcher Network Launch on 12th September – Book Now!

On Wednesday 12th September, BU will be launching its new network specifically for our Early Career Researchers (ECRs).

This initiative underlines the support that is being made available to ECRs as part of the Vitae Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers.

During the day, attendees will have the opportunity to shape the future of the network and contribute to the activities that will take place during the year. Specifically, in the morning, the network’s academic leads (Ann Hemingway and Sam Goodman) will facilitate participative and exploratory sessions to make sure that the ECR Network works for you, the BU ECRs.

After a networking lunch, ECRs in receipt of Acorn Fund awards will present an overview of their research. This will be followed by a ‘showcase’ opportunity for other ECRs to promote and discuss their research with attendees.

By the end of the day, it is excepted that you will:

  • have been able to meet with ECRs from all faculties at BU
  • had the opportunity to share your research interests with others
  • been able to voice your opinions on the development of the ERC Network at BU

The morning sessions are open to ECRs and the lunch and afternoon open to all BU academic staff but especially ECRs.

To book your place, please email RKEDevFramework@bournemouth.ac.uk, stating if you wish to attend the morning, the afternoon or both, along with any dietary requirements.
