Session 310

Assessing the Broad Impact of Research

Track R

Date: Sunday, September 21, 2014


Time: 11:15 – 12:30

Interest Group Panel

Room: Malta

Session Chair:

  • VK Narayanan, Drexel University


Impact of research is with us and is here to stay and there has already been a good deal of academic discussion and debate about this topic. What is needed now is additional consideration as to how we might learn from current practices so as to engage more fully and extend the opportunities that can be identified for how impact might be conceptualized, assessed and created. In this panel, we examine such questions as: the meaning of the term impact, perspectives, theoretical models and assessment schemes for impact In addition, we consider the potential risks of a narrow a focus on impact and how while this might lead to short term gains this might be at expense of larger benefits over the longer term.
