This Working Group (WG) will document how UK universities are currently collecting impact information in their various local software solutions, including commercial and in-house systems and spreadsheets. The WG will also document the various impact reporting information requirements of the UK funders, including REF2014 (the next REF likely to be reasonably similar) and the Researchfish tool. Once we have the above landscape overview the next cycle of work will be to recommend how to move to standardise/harmonise the divergent information requirements.
This review track will start in early May 2017 with the posting of an introductory video by the Working Group and a link to their draft outputs.
