IAP - Impact And Audience Panel

We have established an Impacts and Audience Panel (IAP) for the research project.  The IAP brings together representatives of our key non-academic audiences and will facilitate engagement and exchange between the research team the project partners and our audiences and allow input and involvement with our partners and key audiences, through all stages of the research process.  It aims to ensure that the research outputs are relevant and useful to our key audiences through, for example, IAP collaboration in developing the format of the planned research briefing notes and contributing to the content of the project web site.  

The second meeting of the Panel took place on Tuesday 3 July 2012 at 10.30am in the Newark Room, Lanyon Building, Queen's University Belfast.  Click here for a copy of the agenda and the power point presentation on the research.  A report on the event is available here.

The first meeting of the Panel was held on 27 April 2012 in the Old Staff Common Room at Queen's University Belfast, from 1pm to 3pm.  Follow the links for a copy of the agenda for the first meeting and Dr. Sally Shortall's power point presentation on the research.  A short report on the event is also available here.
