Impact Science, a division of Cactus Communications that provides end-to-end support for the research impact life cycle, has partnered with Vertigo Ventures (VV), a UK-based company that offers innovative technology solutions for impact measurement, to provide research institutions with services and systematic support for more efficient and productive impact management.
Substantial annual funding to universities in the UK depends on their ability to demonstrate the impact of their research outside academia, and there is a growing impact agenda in other countries. While many institutions have improved how they manage impact activities thanks to their experience of navigating through the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), impact managers continue to face challenges in improving the strategy and implementation of impact activities.
Both VV and Impact Science offer expertise that can address the challenges faced by impact managers. VV specialises in consultancy, training, and technology solutions to identify, capture, and report impact and solve skill and workflow management challenges in organisations. VV-Impact Tracker, their flagship software product, is used by many leading universities to measure impact efficiently. Impact Science, on the other hand, provides tailor-made consultancy support throughout the research project's impact life cycle: creating a pathway to impact, communicating research outcomes, capturing evidence of impact, engaging with beneficiaries, and writing and editing impact case studies. An impact partner works closely with each client to provide end-to-end support.
