A workshop on cultivating effective impact partnerships that help researchers’ work matter will take place via Zoom on May 2, 2-4 p.m. Registration is required to receive the Zoom link

All scholars hope their work will have impact within and beyond academia, and public and private sponsors of research increasingly expect the societal impacts of projects to be described in funding proposals. Yet the specialized nature of scholarly work means faculty often lack the knowledge and resources to engage meaningfully with diverse stakeholders to conceptualize, implement and evaluate the impact of their work. 

In the first hour of the workshop, research impact coordinator Jocelyn Bosley will discuss the elements of a successful impact partnership; best practices for identifying and approaching prospective partners; and how faculty can leverage strategic, mutually beneficial partnerships to further their impact goals. The second hour will feature a panel discussion by Nebraska faculty and their community partners, who will share their experiences and insights for developing and sustaining effective impact partnerships.
