Welcome to the GCUA 2030 webinar ”Why I wrote an impact CV” by Professor Katherine Andrews, Director Griffith Institute for Drug Discovery, Australia.

Date and time: 7 June 2022, 8:30-9:30 am CEST 

Location: Zoom

The past years have seen a dramatic change in the academic research community, with funders increasingly requiring explicit evidence of research ‘impact’, in addition to conventional metrics such as a researcher’s previous publications, funding success and the quality of the journals they’ve published in. The motivation behind this shift is the need to keep the end use of our research in mind, whether that’s improving human health, changing policy, creating economic or social benefits, or providing education and building capacity — that is, developing the potential for people and organisations to respond effectively to a community’s needs.

But compiling evidence of impact can be challenging and there are no existing framework for documenting such evidence. That is the reason why Professor Katherine Andrews decided to confront the problem head on and create an Impact CV which she will tell us more about at this seminar. Welcome!

Katherine Andrews is the Director of Griffith Intitute for Drug Discovery working with a research team focused on trying to improve the lives of people who suffer from malaria. They do this through the discovery and pre-clinical investigation of new drug leads for malaria prevention and treatment and by understanding how current drugs work.
