Developing and achieving research impact is one of the biggest challenges faced by researchers today. This presentation covered the meaning of impact in relation to our new research project on developing effective strategies for supporting victims of cybercrime. The presentation illuminated the different types of research impact and how impact can be planned into proposals, evaluated and evidenced. In addition, our presentation focused on the various factors to consider in developing impactful research, including preliminary tasks like creating a coherent narrative, choosing the right methodology and engaging potential participants and shareholders. The presentation sought to provide other researchers at similar stages of development with practical ideas and suggestions on how to develop and achieve impact in their own research.


The session discussed the principal aim of the research project, which is to measure the prevalence and impact of different types of cybercrime in the broader London Borough of Ealing and assess relevant community needs. It provided a detailed insight into the core research objectives of the study and explained how the researchers aim to achieve and corroborate the research impact by, for example, raising public awareness and developing training packages.
