Title: Using an Impact CV to plan, track and communicate your research and engagement impacts

Seminar Overview -

There is an increasing need for researchers to be able to demonstrate the impact of their research and engagement activities and to do so with "verifiable evidence". The need to keep the end use of our research in mind is critical, whether that be improving human health or education, changing policy, generating economic or social benefits, or building capacity and infrastructure. However, knowing how to plan for impact, to track evidence of impact and to communicate impact stories can be challenging, even for experienced researchers. To address this, I developed an Impact CV that, unlike a traditional CV that is largely focused on metrics, provides a template for researchers to gather evidence that can be used to plan for impact and build impact stories targeted to different audiences, including funders, promotion and award committees, donors and members of the community. In this presentation, an overview of the Impact CV will be presented using practical examples. https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-022-00300-6

Presenter Biography -

Professor Kathy Andrews is the Director of the Griffith Institute for Drug Discovery (GRIDD). Her research focuses on contributing to improving the lives of people who suffer from malaria through the discovery and pre-clinical investigation of new drug leads for malaria prevention and treatment and by understanding how current drugs work. Kathy has a PhD in microbiology and more than 20 years' experience in malaria research, including as an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at Heidelberg University in Germany and as an ARC Future Fellow at Griffith University and the QIMR Berghofer institute. Kathy collaborates nationally and internationally with biologists and chemists from both academia and industry including the CSIRO and the Medicines for Malaria Venture. Kathy was elected as a Fellow of the Australian Society for Parasitology in 2020 and has received several awards including the 2021 Griffith VC Excellence Award for Research Leadership and 2020 Griffith PVC Sciences Excellence Award for Research Leadership. Kathy is passionate about mentoring the next generation of researchers. She is the founder and Director of the That's RAD! Science STEM outreach project. In 2022, she developed the Impact CV to help researchers around the world more effectively track, plan and communicate the impact of their research and engagement activities.
