Measuring the impact of research

The Sax Institute, The Australian Prevention Partnership Centre, Cognitive Decline Partnership Centre and the Partnership Centre for Health System Sustainability are pleased to invite you to this upcoming public lecture.

There is increasing pressure for researchers to achieve ‘impact’, but this means different things to different people.

Impact occurs when research generates health, economic or cultural benefits in addition to building the academic knowledge base. But how do we know if research has generated these benefits? How do we measure whether research affects outcomes, and what are the processes and activities through which this is achieved?

We will hear from two leaders in this space: Professor Trish Greenhalgh from the University of Oxford, and Professor Anne Kelso, CEO of the NHMRC. Professor Greenhalgh’s talk will address “Measuring the impact of research: tensions, paradoxes and lessons from the UK’. Professor Kelso will discuss NHMRC’s perspective and its work in this area.

Who should attend?

This seminar will be of interest to health researchers, policy makers and practitioners
