What effect does my research have on the world?
Rachel Oldroyd, UK Data Service Data Impact Fellow, explores a very real question facing researchers. Just how do we know we're making a real impact?...
We have set up a Lab to innovate and enhance our impact through working more closely with tech entrepreneurs and innovators developing inspiring digital solutions to social challenges with new and existing data users in a range of sectors.
Every day, data from the UK Data Service collection are used to inform research, influence policy and teach the next generation of social scientists.
The Director of Understanding Society, Michaela Benzeval, discusses the impact of making data available through the UK Data Service.
The UK Data Service is funded by the ESRC with contributions from the University of Essex, the University of Manchester and Jisc.
