Institution: University of York, University of LeedsBuilding Impact into Social Science Research was funded by vitae innovate fund applied for and successfully awarded to Professor Richard Thorpe and Dr Paul Ellwood. The event was supported by the Staff and Departmental Development Unit at Leeds. Much of the following text formed part of a proposal to Vitae written by Paul Ellwood and Richard Thorpe, with summary and context written by Jenn Chubb at the University of York. This Vitae Innovate funded project enabled the development of a module to be integrated into postgraduate training programmes – it contained both concepts and practical tools aimed at helping students understand and connect with aspects related to the impact of social science research. The Innovate fund supported a two day Leeds University Business School course entitled Building Impact into Social Science Research followed by a two day Social Science- wide White Rose residential event at Bodington Hall with input from academics reporting on the impact of their research and interactive group work activities. Building Impact into Social Science Research aimed to provide an introduction to this increasingly important aspect of a researcher’s life. Through a mixture of presentations, specialist speakers and practical exercises, the workshop provided a grounding in the emerging UK policy environment, appropriate research design and practical engagement mechanisms with research stakeholders.

Institution: University of DurhamApplications are invited from individual and teams of doctoral researchers at Durham University responsible for organizing short-term, well-defined conferences and events of a subject-specific, interdisciplinary or generic nature. Applicants submit an application form in which they are asked to describe their proposed project, explain its relevance for the potential audience, justify the expenditure requested and provide a time-line for the completion of the project. The maximum level of award is £1000 per conference or event and although funding can be used for most purposes, it cannot be used for providing travel bursaries for attendance. In addition to funding, Graduate School can also provide: • project management support • equipment on loan, including poster boards, flip charts and delegate name badges As a condition of the award, successful applicants are required to write a short report after the event or conference. There are three submission deadlines for the year, in late October, January and April.
