This workshop is designed for commercialisation, knowledge exchange and research professionals who wish to refresh their ‘impact toolkit’. Join us for this half-day in-person workshop in Oxford, where you will have the opportunity to learn about and practice using impact measurement frameworks.

Using an interactive case-based approach*, this course will cover:

  • Logic models and theory of change methodologies
  • Social impact models
  • Measuring and evidencing impact

Because of the interactive nature, this workshop is being held in-person, with limited places available. Register now to hold your place.

* We will use a case study approach to apply the methods introduced in the course. For groups of two or more attendees, you may also bring your own project or programme to workshop in the session.
