Funding to support development of Crossing Boundaries Impact Case Study

Added on Wednesday, March 28th, 2018

Research and Innovation Services (RIS) at Liverpool John Moores University have awarded funding to the ICC to support the development of an Impact Case Study (ICS), in preparation for the forthcoming Research Excellence Framework (REF) in 2021. The award follows an application led by the ICC’s Head of Research Kerry Wilson to the Higher Education Innovation Fund (HEIF) Impact Uplift scheme, based on our long-term research partnership with National Museums Liverpool (NML), Crossing Boundaries: The value of museums in dementia care.

The Crossing Boundaries research team, including Rafaela Ganga and Gayle Whelan, will use the funding to run a research impact workshop in collaboration with NML and invited strategic stakeholders in July 2018. During the workshop we will share up-to-date research findings and emerging indicators of research impact; NML’s international development plans for House of Memories, the award-winning dementia awareness programme and focus of our study; discuss stakeholder responses to the research and its applied relevance; establish on-going engagement mechanisms between the research team and participating stakeholders via a collaborative research impact plan.

Further information on the workshop will be shared via our project web pages. We are delighted to receive this funding as an indication of the value of our research at this stage in the REF 2021 cycle.
