Surveying the regional impact of Cambridge University's research

Surveying the regional impact of Cambridge University's research


We are exploring the impact of the University of Cambridge’s research on the East of England (Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire) and would like to identify academics whose research

·        has societal, economic, environmental or other implications for the eastern region

·        has a wider focus but would still have particular relevance to the region (e.g. traffic or productivity)

·        is being undertaken with eastern regional partners (academic, business or otherwise)


Please complete the short survey by 31 August 2018



The information will be used by the Pro-Vice-Chancellors’ Office and the Office of External Affairs and Communications to outline our strengths across the region and to identify what, if anything, might be done by the University, funding bodies and regional policymakers to increase our research and policy contributions regionally. This endeavour is not intended to constrain our focus to regional issues but to help maximise the effectiveness of our research where and when it does relate to the region.


The information will also be used to help identify potential content for a special issue of our research magazine, Research Horizons, dedicated to exploring the impact of our research on the East of England.


For projects involving multiple researchers, we would prefer the PI to complete the survey. If you are involved in multiple relevant projects, please feel free to group your projects together in one response.


If you have any questions, please contact the teams listed below:
