Dr. Stephen Kemp
Stephen is a funding and impact consultant working with universities and individual academics. He provides training and one-to-one support to help academics win funding, build pathways to impact and report on that impact. Impact can be messy and unpredictable but Stephen believes building it in at the outset boosts the prospect of real impact and makes for better quality research. Previously he has worked as a chemistry researcher, a UK Research Councils portfolio manager (managing the funding process), a university funding manager (helping academic staff navigate the funding process) and a university impact manager (nurturing impact culture and supporting preparations for impact assessment in the UK’s REF2021).
