Research Impact Framework (RIF)

The Researcher Impact Framework (RIF) is a resource to help researchers plan for and communicate a research project’s predictive impact when applying for award applications, funding proposals, and promotion processes. The RIF provides a structure for crafting audience-focused, evidence-based impact narratives that connect scholarly activities, reach, use, and relevance data to scientific and societal outcomes. The RIF has been developed by Dr Giovanna Lima, Research Impact Officer based in the Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute, and Sarah Bowman, Director of Strategic Engagement and Impact Assessment in the Office of the Dean of Research.
