A one-day event brought together postgraduate students from across all Faculties of the University to explore and articulate the impact of their research and how it relates to the concept of ‘cultural value’. Students were able to connect with postgraduate research students from a large range of disciplines, and to think about how explicitly engaging with ‘impact’ can benefit their future careers in both academia and industry.
