Professor Rhodri Thomas to launch new book at Headingley Campus
22 October 2018
Professor Rhodri Thomas will be answering questions at the launch of his new book on Headingley Campus next month.
The Dean of Events, Tourism and Hospitality is unveiling Questioning the Assessment of Research Impact: Illusions, Myths and Marginal Sectors in Room G03, Macauley Hall on Thursday 1 November.
The hour-and-a-half event starts at 12, and includes an introduction from Vice-Chancellor Professor Peter Slee and a Q and A with the author.
In the book, Professor Thomas questions the relationship between academics and private firms, public policy-makers and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs).
He draws on a variety of sources to make his case, including using original data and his own experience of carrying out impact studies for the Economic and Social Research Council.If you would like to attend, please contact Linda Hepworth by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
