Pathways to Impact: Impact core to the UK Research and Innovation application process
27 Jan 2020
As part of a package of announcements today, UK Research and Innovation has announced changes to our requirements on 'Pathways to Impact'.
UK Research and Innovation's ambition is to create a stronger research and innovation environment that is focussed on supporting talented people and realising the full potential of their work.
Applicants to UK Research and Innovation - including the Research Councils - will no longer be required to provide a 'Pathways to Impact' plan or complete an 'Impact Summary' within grant applications from 1 March 2020.
The impact agenda remains vital - UK Research and Innovation exists to fund the researchers who generate the knowledge that society needs, and the innovators who can turn this knowledge into public benefit.
