When: Wednesday 19th February, 9:30am-10:30am
In this recorded session, a panel of researchers will discuss how they’ve managed to achieve social impact, both within their research and beyond it. We will discuss motivations and enablers for achieving social impacts as researchers, considering as well how the experiences and backgrounds of researchers shape their social impact efforts. The first half an hour will be curated discussion, followed by equal time for facilitated Q&A discussion. The recording will be used in the new UNSW Masters course ‘Leading Science for Impact’; please bear this in mind if you contribute in discussion time.
What will participants gain from attending your session?
– Understanding of types of social impact that researchers can achieve
– Insights into how individual researchers experience their role in science
communication and motivations/incentives/outcomes of their participation
