Showcasing Physical Sciences Impact
EPSRC is hosting an exciting event, sponsored by the Institute of Physics and the Royal Society of Chemistry, to celebrate the significant and wide-ranging impacts that arise from the breadth of physical sciences research: from the fundamental to the applied.
The event will include plenary talks, keynote speech and 10-15 exhibits demonstrating the best of physical sciences impact, and panel sessions focussing on the three pillars of impact: 1) economic, social & cultural impact, 2) impact through knowledge and 3) impact through people.
The event will bring together academics and industrialists from across a broad range of disciplines along with policy makers to share, discuss and celebrate the far-reaching and varied impacts of physical sciences research.
With the event we aim to:
- Raise the profile of the exciting and varied impact of physical sciences research amongst stakeholders including industry, the third sector, academia, senior leaders of UKRI and policy makers.
- Raise awareness within the physical sciences research community of the three pillars of impact, the potential opportunities for pathways to impact and how EPSRC can further support this.
Increase understanding amongst stakeholders of the latency of physical sciences research, its transformational but risky nature and the timeline to translation
