UK IODP Impact Narratives

  • NERC’s Planet Earth Spring/Summer 2018 edition contains an IODP feature highlighting geohazard-related research arising from NOC and Cardiff University.
  • In October 2017, UK IODP presented a poster featuring 4 impact case studies at the AAPG-ICE meeting in London.  The poster and abstract are available online.
  • In September 2017, UK IODP was featured in Impact Publication including a series of case studies of impactful UK research. A copy of the article is available here:  UKIODP_ImpactPublication
  • The development of an online taxonomic database for academic and industrial biostratigraphers by UK IODP researchers at University College London, was featured in GEOExPro vol 12 no. 6
  • Landmark Exploration Insights, which utilises DSDP/ODP/IODP data for populating its interactive globally consistent Global Earth Model, was featured with UK IODP in GEOExPro vol 12 no. 6 in 2016

Impact Capture

NERC defines ‘impact’ as the demonstrable contribution that excellent research makes to society and the economy.  This includes:

  • UK competitive advantage: creating and growing new national and international markets and businesses, attracting inward foreign investment.
  • UK policy leadership:  informing policy and regulation (for example, through understanding the process of environmental change).
  • Improving UK business performance: improving and optimising existing business.
  • Transforming UK public service: enhancing public health and wellbeing; saving the public sector money; enabling a resilient society.

We are continuously looking for evidence of any impact arising from IODP science undertaken in the UK.  GET IN TOUCH…..
