About the club

Impact is a small word with many meanings. It can be overwhelming for someone starting out, or even for seasoned experts, to navigate the challenges of evaluating impact. The impact coffee club is a friendly group of people who gather every couple of months to network, share knowledge and keep up-to-date on new developments. In-between meetings, members stay in contact and share resources through a LinkedIn hub.

The club was first conceived when directors of health funding agencies, universities, NHS Trusts and Clinical Commissioning Groups came together for an AMRC/NIHR impact forum in the spring of 2016. It became clear that a shared language around impact needed to be developed and an informal forum seemed like the best environment for this to succeed. The first coffee club meeting was held in June 2016 and the membership continues to grow.
