The University of Lincoln has a proud history and ongoing commitment to purposeful research, and research which makes a difference regionally, nationally and internationally. Impact – or the provable benefits of research in the ‘real world’ – is central to many of our activities, and reflects the commitment of so many colleagues in engaging with businesses, charities, schools, public services and many other areas outside the university setting. In March 2021 we submitted a range of impact case studies to the Research Excellence Framework (REF), showcasing some of the wealth of benefits UoL research has had in many aspects of life. As we emerge from that process, we can turn attention to stronger approaches not only to generate more impact, but also to support staff build impact into their research and individual professional development. In this session we will celebrate our REF submissions, update on developments within the institution and across the sector, and look ahead to collaboratively shaping how Lincoln best contributes to the world around us.
