Research Impact Showcase


Making a difference around the world

Research impact is defined as a change, effect or benefit that a specific research output has on the economy, society, communities, culture, public policy or services, health, the environment, or quality of life, beyond its academic merits. In practice, this means that the research conducted at Oxford Brookes University makes a real world difference for the benefit of our communities, whether local, regional or global, including our staff and students.

As a university with a commitment to knowledge exchange and impact excellence, we wish to recognise and celebrate the contribution made by our researchers who are motivated by the desire that their research will make a real difference beyond the University. Throughout the year, our showcase of research impact will highlight in myriad ways, where and how our research has made a difference and importantly, changed lives.
