Impact Tracker

About Impact Tracker

Measurement of research engagement and impact is a relatively novel concept to institutions nationally and globally with the first Australian Engagement and Impact Assessment occurring in 2018. The Impact Tracker project will deliver a system allowing researchers to understand and track the impact of their research. The Impact Tracker system has a unique framework to guide researchers methodically through a process that will help them capture evidence of engagement and impact as it occurs, making it easier to plan, record and report on these parameters.

The benefits of Impact Tracker

  • UQ will have the infrastructure to capture a comprehensive and accurate knowledgebase of the engagement activities and impacts resulting from research undertaken at UQ,
  • The knowledgebase of research impacts will inform planning and comprehensive reporting (e.g. for ARC’s Engagement and Impact),
  • Evidence of impact captured within Impact Tracker will support individual academic portfolios,
  • Data captured within Impact Tracker will assist in identifying end-user collaborators and allow more extensive promotion of UQ’s breadth of research quality and impact.
