Investigating Academic Impact
A conference at the London School of Economics on Monday 13 June 2011
We’d like to say a huge thank you to all the attendees, speakers, and organisational staff who helped make the Investigating Academic Impact conference on 13th June a success.
Almost 400 academics and researchers from across Europe were in attendance for a day of discussion and debate.
This one day conference looked at a range of issues surrounding the impact of academic work on government, business, communities and public debate. Panel discussions considered what impact is, how impacts happen and innovative ways that academics can communicate their work. The smaller sessions looked at how academic work has impact among policymaking and business communities, and how academic communication can be improved and how individual academics can easily start to asses their own impact.
