At Vertigo Ventures we understand that embedding impact in your research organisation goes beyond launching our innovative technology. We understand that for researchers to undertake the activities that will create opportunities for impact, they must be supported in the planning, execution and recording of these activities. Our roll out service engages all the key impact stakeholders at your institution, providing an understanding of what impact is and what their role is in planning for, reporting and capturing impact.
Being able to plan, articulate, and report impact is important for the institution's reputation as well as individual researchers' profiles.
