Our impact evaluation work helps to demonstrate the broader contribution of social science to society and the economy. This forms part of our strategic emphasis on impact assessment along with our other work on evaluation and international benchmarking.

Analyses and future directions

We have produced a series of reports that analyse ESRC's impact evaluation work and discuss further activity to be taken forward.

Scoping events

We have convened a number of scoping events to explore development of impact evaluation methods. The events shared findings of recent impact evaluation studies and discussed possible activity to drive the area forward.
