Bioscience Impact Team


Impact is the demonstrable contribution of excellent research to society and the economy, through the application of knowledge to generate meaningful outcomes.

The application can be commercial, clinical, environmental, or related to industry, policy or public perceptions. Impact involves creating some sort of change or introducing something new, e.g. a novel diagnostic, improvement in a conservation outcome, an amendment to policy, the establishing of a company, altered clinical practice, licensing technology so a company can use it.

For examples of impact achieved in the School of the Biological Sciences, take a look at our case studies.
