Speakers will outline NIHR's strategic review of 'maximising impact', its rationale and emerging findings. Participants will gain an insight into NIHR's priorities linked to impact and recent policies and areas of work such as open access.

The talks will be illustrated by examples of NIHR's current practice in these areas.

Attendees will have the chance to feed into the next phase of the review.

This event will be particularly useful for those interested in health research, interdisciplinary research, public engagement, research impact and social sciences research.
