What is Impact?

Research can have impact in a number of ways.  This page, and the work on Impact which is carried out through the Impact Advisory Board, covers REFable impact.  For Impact to count as REFable impact, your research needs to have had an impact beyond academia.  This impact should have seen your research change, or influence change.  And, crucially we need to be able to evidence this change.

For the purposes of the REFimpact is defined as an effect on, change or benefit to the economy, society, culture, public policy or services, health, the environment or quality of life, beyond academia.

Impact Funding

The School of Management has two bi-annual internal funding calls for academics to support Impact:

The applications for these grants are considered by the REF2021 Internal Steering Group at the April and October meetings. 


Current Impact Grant application deadline: Thursday 1st November 2018 at noon

Next round: Opens January 2019 and application deadline is Monday 11th March 2019


Impact Initiator Grant

Applicants can apply for funding of up to £3,000 to help spur opportunities to generate impact. We would hope that all our impact efforts are underpinned by research whose quality is recognized at international level. Although it is not a requirement that the activity is tied to an existing of body of published work, it would be helpful if the research is in a well-developed state (e.g. conference papers, submissions to journals). Creative ideas are welcome.

Impact Delivery Grant - Support for Developing REF Impact Case

Applicants can apply for funding of up to £5,000 and or remission of up to 25% to enable the applicant(s) the time to draft and collect evidence for potential REF Impact case study. Impact should have generated after August 2013 from research conducted since January 2000 at Bath.
