This report, a joint effort by Vertigo Ventures and collaborators, is based on the consolidated analysis of the 264 “world leading” (4*) and “internationally excellent” (3*) Impact Case Studies (ICS) submitted to the RAE 2020 by the 8 UGC-funded universities in Hong Kong.

This report shows that there is excellent work being carried out by institutions across Hong Kong, but that there are still plenty of ways to further adapt and improve impact – whether that’s making engagement as inclusive as possible, planning ahead for long-term impact, or building impact culture within units of assessments or departments.
Now the UK’s REF 2021 results are out, we have more information than ever to understand the trajectory of global impact, and learn from both exercises in improving the processes around how we understand and assess research impact.
What types of impact outcomes have been submitted, and what pathways have been taken?
What are the time lags between underpinning research and impact outcomes exampled in the impact case studies?
IMPACT CASE STUDIES
According to the impact case studies, what types of research users benefit from the research, and to what extent?
