Impact Training

Delivering impact training since 2010, Vertigo Ventures believes in enabling quality impact reporting through comprehensive training workshops that will provide you with the expertise and understanding to identify and embed impact.

Being able to plan, articulate, and report impact is important for institutional reputation as well as individual researcher profiles.

Our workshops are designed for researchers and their support teams, to enhance the societal, economic and environmental impact of their research and more effectively engage end users throughout the research process.

  • The workshops cover:
  • An introduction to research impact for researchers and support teams, including definitions
  • The latest guidance from funders
  • Practical steps researchers can take to create opportunities for impact
  • Strategic workshops for senior management to embed impact throughout the organisation
