Oxford Brookes University is committed to enhancing the impact of our
research for the benefit of our communities, whether local, regional or global,
including our staff and students.
We foster a culture where:
Academic impact: the demonstrable contribution that excellent research makes to academic
advances, across and within disciplines, including significant advances in
understanding, methods, theory, application and academic practice.
Wider impact: an effect on, change to, or benefit for the economy, society, culture,
public policy or services, health, the environment, or quality of life, beyond
For example, changes to awareness, attitude, understanding, behaviour,
capacity, opportunity, policy or practice.
As a result of their interaction with the research, through various
knowledge exchange or engagement activities, the lives or activities of
individuals, organisations, or communities will be positively influenced.
