The Research Councils UK (RCUK) Digital Economy Theme (DET) is running a competition which is designed to help capture and promote the impact that your digital economy research is having.
There are three prizes of £10,000 available which will support researchers to further tell the story of research impact in an interesting and engaging way to a larger audience. The competition is designed to produce very informative case study exemplars which can be used to help the wider research community develop understanding of the nature of a pathway to impact. It aims to encourage applicants to tell a story to describe the pathway to impact which actually occurred. This should be even more informative because understanding how impact arises is key to planning for future impact pathways. They want the stories to portray impact as including what capability has changed outside the institutions, and what benefits that exercising this capability change has then delivered. Each “Tale of Engagement” in showing how the actual impact arises and the evidence of the impact itself will thereby show clearly the link between the impact and the research. Choosing how to tell the story should reflect the nature of the story itself.
