Research impact

Research impact is the contribution research makes to the economy, society, environment or culture outside of academia. It has become a key aspect of the reporting and assessment of research in Australia.

The Research Impact team works with researchers, schools and departments to deliver:

  • Strategic development to ensure La Trobe research contributes to positive change in the world outside academia
  • Support and development for researchers in identifying, tracking and documenting the impact of their research
  • Internal and external reporting on the impact of La Trobe research
  • The University’s submission to the Excellence in Research Australia (ERA) Engagement and Impact Assessment
  • Promotion of the impact of La Trobe’s research to our partners and communities
