The Impact Agenda – an ESRC-funded seminar series
Seminar 5: New Frontiers of Impact
Wednesday 22 February 2012
Room 2.40, Manchester Business School West
This seminar is part of the ESRC-funded methods@manchester seminar series on the Impact Agenda.
The series adopts an interdisciplinary perspective to examine and clarify the concept of ‘impact’ in the context of academic research in the humanities and social science. The aim is to identify the processes that influence impact and explore mechanisms that maximise it.
“New frontiers of impact” gives us considerable leeway for exploring how different types of knowledge creation and application may shape the impact agenda, including examination of how these knowledge processes and outcomes may be appropriated and further shaped and developed by users (and co-producers) of different sorts.
