Researchers at Durham, Newcastle, Northumberland and Sunderland universities can now apply to join spring’s cohort of Action for Impact.

Action for Impact is an exciting training opportunity to help you develop the personal, societal and commercial impact of your research. If you want to make a positive change in society by actively applying your research skills and knowledge, find out more and apply by 5 February 2021.

Both the format and the content of the course have been adapted to run online, with much of the learning accessible to download in your own time. Participants will then join live discussion groups once a week over a three-week period, led by world-class facilitators and experts in researcher development.

You’ll develop an innovative mind-set and enterprising approach, within a multidisciplinary cohort. This established programme, delivered by Newcastle University, is available to researchers across all disciplines.

Action for Impact is primarily aimed at early career researchers, however it is open to any academic with an interest in developing the skills to realise impact from their research.
