DEMONSTRATING IMPACT AND VITALITY
Tuesday 29 January 2013, 10.30am-3.30pm
Warwick Medical School, Main Atrium and Rooms GLT3 &GLT4
Impact of health related research in the fields of policy and practice across the University through posters and brief presentations
Many staff in departments and centres across the University conduct research which is related to health. Some of the disciplines are not those traditionally associated with health and yet they may be conducting relatively small but important projects. As a result their impact and benefits for patients in policy and practice within the health system in the UK and beyond can go unnoticed. The Institute of Health in collaboration with the IKON research centre are convening a one day event designed to showcase the work of researchers from across the University who have an interest in heath related research. Surfacing the rich and varied nature of health research at Warwick is particularly important this year as reach and significance of impact and vitality of the academic environment are all key criteria in the REF exercise.
The aims of the day
Raise the profile of health research at Warwick and its impact in the UK and beyond. Demonstrating the vitality and sustainability of the academic environment at Warwick University. Strengthen interdisciplinary collaboration and links beyond Warwick
The ethos of the day would be inclusive and multidisciplinary and we welcome both staff members and PhD students. The event will be open to the public and invitations will be sent to healthcare practitioners in the Midlands.
What will happen?
The day would consist of a poster display with the potential for departments and centres to give brief 10 minutes oral presentations on major research themes and programmes. Poster boards, a speakers’ corner, and spaces for informal networking will be provided. The event is free of charge.
