Research Impact Strategy 2022-28

The University of Reading is committed to achieving impact from its research through its Research and Innovation Strategy (2019) and the University’s Strategic Plan (2020-26). This Impact Strategy supports those strategies and is an important component in their delivery.


The Impact Strategy contributes to the University’s four Strategic Principles:

  • bringing together our communities (staff and students) in common purpose
  • using a problem-centred approach will ensure we become an engaged university
  • by understanding the nature of the problems we will achieve excellence in our research through the purposeful knowledge we produce
  • working together to make the best use of our resources and research we be able to tackle local and global sustainability in a meaningful way.

The University of Reading Research Impact Strategy outlines our institutional approach to impact, what we want to achieve, who is involved and how we will support the delivery of impact.
