The EPSRC's views of impact
Dr Lesley Thompson, Director of the Research Base, EPSRC
Tuesday 15 December 2009, 1230-1330
Lecture Theatre 1, Management School Building
Lesley Thompson, Director of the Research Base at the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), will talk about impact as understood by the EPSRC and particularly the role of impact statements in grant applications.
Lesley was previously Director of Research and Innovation at the EPSRC, and currently has responsibility for the delivery of research programmes, liaison with the academic community, career development and the support of researchers, and capacity building and peer review, so she is very well placed to discuss impact from the research council perspective.
