Research impact is a metric of research excellence and a fundamental contributor to accountability and effective governance. Drawing on the connections between her research, professional body engagements, collaboration with standard setters and advisory roles, Prof Adams will explain how her research and engagement work led to impact, how evidence of impact was gathered for the UK Research Excellence Framework 2021, and how impact leads to further research.
