Knowledge Exchange and Impact

Wider Engagement with Society is one of Oxford’s core strategic objectives. KE and Impact (viz. the demonstrable contribution that excellent research makes to society and the economy) are also at the forefront of the Government agenda on higher education (including through the Research Councils and InnovateUK, the REF and HEIF), and are of keen interest to many other research funders, industry and other groups.  

The role of the Knowledge Exchange and Impact Team (KEIT) within Research Services is to support, promote and coordinate KE and impact activities across the University, including the Research & Innovation Support Network (RISN).
