About the presentation

The UK, Australia, Netherlands and Hong Kong have system wide assessments of research impact and New Zealand is moving in that direction. Some universities in Canada, the US and Sub-Saharan Africa are creating impacts that are not driven by assessment. In Canada while we are focused on creating impacts we don’t have tools to capture the evidence of impact. Why? Because no one is asking for it (yet!). KMb York and Kids Brain Health Network have developed a tool to consistently collect and articulate the evidence of impact and have piloted the tool on three cases. This session will present the tool and create space for participants to review and provide feedback. And yes, to take away and use it if desired.
