Researchers in the UK are taking on new roles and responsibilities to meet the requirements of an expanded agenda for generating and evidencing social and economic impacts from research. Within this wider context, culture change programmes have identified learning as an important driver of change. Here we outline a professional development programme designed to train postgraduate researchers studying environmental sciences in core engagement, influence and impact, governance and organization
more &raquo; ... lls for research. We argue that training is an important step in further catalysing progressive culture change. However, our research-and experience-informed critical reflections in supporting researchers suggest that there is still significant work to be done: (1) to offer consistent messages to researchers at all grades about social impacts from research and (2) to ensure that engagement is seen as an aspirational activity, embedded within research. Keywords: engaged research; postgraduate research; career and professional development; researcher development framework; environmental sciences; social and economic impact Key messages • Researchers, support staff and non-academic stakeholders require clarity and consistency in all messaging, assessments and feedback about the research impact agenda.
