UC Research Impact Case Studies

16 February 2024

Learn more about UC Research Impact through our research case study series. We use the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) definition of impact as “A change to the economy, society or environment, beyond contribution to knowledge and skills in research organisations.”

The first case study series provides examples of researchers who are working to promote a more Sustainable Future and focuses on the range of impacts they are creating through their research. The series is being launched in March 2024, with a new case study released each month. Each case study provides a big picture description of how the researcher works towards making positive change in the world, with early career researchers describing how they plan for change, even if that change hasn’t yet been delivered.
