Flinders Research NewsAccess Flinders' Engagement and Impact submission and join us to learn more
The Flinders University submission report for the ARC Engagement and Impact (EI) is now available.
The ARC Engagement and Impact assessment framework is a key measure under the National Innovation Science Agenda (NISA). EI 2018 was undertaken as a companion to ERA2018 and focused on assessing the engagement of researchers with end-users and showcases how universities are translating their research into economic, social , environmental and other impacts (ref: www.arc.gov.au/engagement-and-impact-assessment).
The EI2018 national report and impact case studies will be publicly available on the ARC website in early 2019. The Flinders EI2018 showcases the significant impact that Flinders’ research is delivering to industry and government as well as how our research is Making a Difference in the wider community.
The Flinders submission was a result of significant commitment and effort by a wide range of Flinders researchers and professional staff. The DVCR, Professor Rob Saint , PVC (research Impact), Professor John Spoehr and Director, Research Development and Support, Jodieann Dawe would like to extend their thanks and gratitude to all involved in the EI2018 submission.

With governments and funding bodies now looking to measure and weigh impact and engagement, now is the time to get ahead on E&I. The changing face of research reporting will be explored, discussed and experiences shared at Flinders Focus on Research Engagement and Impact in the week of 24 September 2018.
Why Flinders is involved in Engagement and Impact and most importantly, why now, are questions that will be answered in the presentations, workshops and peer-learning sessions. Come along to hear from your peers, Flinders staff, and industry members on what is good practice, communication skills specific for E&I and many more other skills and knowledge sharing.
Open to the entire research community, we welcome ECRs, MCRs, established researchers, research leaders and research support staff to participate. Rural and remote colleagues will be able to access and participate in sessions – please email the Researcher Professional Development team for further details.
