Abstract: 

This seminar examined the policy drivers for why governments throughout the world are interested in capturing, articulating and assessing the non-academic impacts of the research they fund, exploring the challenges in assessing research impact and understanding the benefits that can arise from such assessment. The seminar drew from a number of recent RAND Europe studies to illustrate these wider issues.
