Measuring Societal Impact in Business Research: From Challenges to Change
There is a growing, urgent conversation around understanding the societal impact of academic research—particularly within Business & Management. Current metrics—especially those that rely on citation count—do not fully indicate “quality” and fail to capture the influence that research can have on long-term policy, real-world business practice, and the public sphere.

In this webinar, Financial Times journalist Andrew Jack will lead a discussion with Dr. Renate Meyer, Dr. Maura Scott, Dr. Usha Haley, and Mike Taylor as they analyze the issue as part of a larger effort to inspire and change the current measures and find new ways to recognize societal impact.

Participants will discuss what impact is, why we should strive for it, how to achieve it, and how to measure it. The intention is to spark discussion and debate, introduce the Financial Time’s plans for an upcoming “hackathon” on this topic, and ultimately develop new ways of discussing and measuring research impact in line with the many largescale challenges that the world must address, from inequality and inequities to climate change and the environment.

This free, one-hour webinar will be recorded and shared with all registrants.
