ARMS Engagement and Impact Seminar

The recently launched Australian Impact and Engagement exercise is part of a broader Government agenda under the National Innovation & Science Agenda (NISA).

With the exercise fresh in the minds of the higher education sector, this is a good time to look back and reflect on how things went, what might have been done better, learnings from the past and how universities might use this exercise on-going as a way to strengthen pathways to implement their institutional strategies and social and economic implications of the exercise. Additionally, the panel will look at how stories generated from this exercise might be used effectively to bring greater awareness and engagement with the general public on the value of the tertiary sector and research in general.
