About RECOVER Breakfast: How to plan for, gather and present the impact of your research


RECOVER Injury Research Centre is hosting a complimentary breakfast workshop. This is an in-person-only event held at the Victoria Park Function Venue, Herston.

The workshop will benefit researchers and those looking to improve their grant success.

Three speakers will present practical tutorials, followed by a panel discussion and networking session. The three speaker topics are:

  • How to plan for impact success
  • How to gather evidence of research impact
  • How to produce a statement to demonstrate your research impact

If you want to learn how to improve the impact statement section of grant applications, this is the workshop for you! A summary handout will be circulated to all attendees after the event.

Please join us for this FREE event, where you can hear from our invited speakers and network with other researchers.
