"Not having data/evidence readily available to demonstrate how the research has had an impact to funding bodies and other stakeholders to scale work." – UK University Impact Officer
Currently reporting impact is challenging because:
The data is unstructured
Collecting evidence is an administrative burden
There are additional cost and time associated with retrospective reporting
The behaviour change necessary is neglected and research-users are not always engaged.
