The research impact challenge

Stakeholders in research increasingly want to understand where they fit into the research journey.

Research often plays out over a number of years and stakeholders contribute in different ways and at different times during this research journey.

Traditional reporting, such as metrics and case studies, can’t easily show where they fit into this journey and how their contribution helps progress research.

Funders and Stakeholders

Funders and stakeholders want to understand how their support helps solve big research problems.

“Where does my funding go?”


Researchers want to be able to tell funders and stakeholders what they are doing with their support.

“How do I get funders to understand my research and continue to support me?”

Imagine if there was a way to connect stakeholders and funders with researchers so that those who invest time, money, and heart in research can understand how they progress research.

Momentum Empowering Impact has been used for three years at the Telethon Kids Institute to help product their Impact Report. Before we had Momentum Empowering Impact, we were collecting information about our research activities in Word documents.

It has vastly improved the way we collect, access, and understand information about our research.

Demonstrate research impact

Momentum Empowering Impact is a new approach to tracking the progress of research towards real world impacts over time.

Globally, researchers and funding bodies are increasingly required to communicate the impact of their activities to society and demonstrate return on investment.

Momentum Empowering Impact is a novel software solution that enables researchers to show progress in a manner which is relevant to stakeholders including funding bodies, philanthropy, government, industry and community.

This is a gamechanger for research, allowing transparency and context so everyone involved in the process can see progress towards clear goals.
