Funding bodies are increasingly requiring Researchers to achieve Impact within circles wider than the academic.
ArchaeoLink was founded in 2012 as a non-profit organisation to liaise between humanities researchers and the communities in which they work. Its purpose is to both help promote the research and assist those communities to obtain educational, social and economic benefits from their heritage.
This ensures that the impact is not only relevant but is also beneficial.
Impact and benefits can also be achieved for research which is not community based, but has a broader perspective.
Patricia Duff discusses how research impact within the wider community might be planned and achieved.
