The research impact challenge

Funders and stakeholders increasingly want to understand where they fit into the research journey.

The research journey often plays out over a number of years, during which funders and stakeholders contribute in different ways and at different times.

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 funders and stakeholders with researchers so that those who invest time, money and heart in research can understand how they progress research.

Data from Grow Impact is essential for our outcome reporting to State Government in relation to the significant infrastructure funding received annually by our organisation. Before Grow Impact was available, we had to contact each individual researcher included in the report to collect their information manually. This was very time consuming. Grow Impact has streamlined this process for us and has improved the quality of the data we provide in our report.

Demonstrate research impact

Grow 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.

Grow Impact is novel software provided as a service 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.
