You will do this by:
- Using the research findings to impact on the policy process and feedback to academics on the key issues that could direct future research programmes
- Organise events to disseminate the findings of research and to influence key and senior stakeholders
- Work with the Executive Director to build relationships with business, NGOs and public bodies in order to expand the funding base for single entity projects though to broader support for the Institute.
