We have our own framework to help the community evaluate the outcomes and impacts of their public engagement.
We invite award holders to consider how the concepts in this framework can be used to better understand the impact of their work.Download PDF
Like all Research Councils, we use the ResearchFish platform to gather evidence of impact arising from our grants.
STFC public engagement award holders have a specific series of questions to complete on ResearchFish that allows us to better understand the audiences, reach, and outcomes of our engagement.
During 2017, we are working to more closely align ResearchFish and our own evaluation framework, and will provide additional guidance in due course.
The National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement is an invaluable source of guidance and expertise when it comes to planning and undertaking evaluation.
