Impact Tracker

This page is for Oxford Brookes University staff. Its purpose is to explain internal processes to staff members. It was moved into its current location on the website in Autumn 2022.

Page content is being revised to reflect the move to the new Research, Innovation and Enterprise Directorate.

The University has developed the Impact Tracker to enable our research community to capture and record all the various ways in which their research makes positive impacts on individuals, communities and wider society.
