Demonstrating impact can take many forms, including presenting success stories through impact reports but this is no longer sufficient. As technology transfer managers, we are asked to contribute to impact strategies in research proposals and thus need to think broader – especially if we intend to meet the challenge of demonstrating the impact of scientific fields such as SSHA.

In this session, we will build from the experience of our colleagues in the UK who have been through the impact exercise and assess what the challenges are for those who are just embarking on this journey.
