Research Impact & Public Engagement for Career Success – 22 July 2015

jobs.ac.uk is holding a free online video event today – 22 July 2015, 13:00 to 14:00 (BST), called ‘Research Impact & Public Engagement for Career Success’.

This event is open to anyone and is completely free of charge. Our expert panel includes Steven Hill, Head of the Research Policy at HEFCE and Sierra Williams, Managing Editor of the LSE Impact Blog.

Research impact embraces all the diverse ways that excellent research benefits society, the economy and nations. But how can you ensure you are delivering world-class, innovative impact for the REF 2020?

Public Engagement isn’t something new that researchers need to start doing. There is a huge amount of engagement activity already happening but even more than ever funders and policy makers expect it.

Research impact and public engagement should be core parts of every skilled PhD, academic and researcher’s portfolio to help improve communication skills, influencing techniques and attract funding and career opportunities. To help you with developing your portfolio, jobs.ac.uk is holding a FREE 60-minute live video event via a #jobsQ Google+ Hangout called ‘Research Impact & Public Engagement for Career Success.’
