ARC Impact Case studies dataset

The ARC Impact Case Studies dataset has been released to the public after the ARC Engagement and Impact assessment exercise. The dataset is collated from submissions of  Australian universities to the 2018 assessment. It provides a rich source of insights into how research has been translated into impact beyond academia.

Of particular interest are case studies where data played a pivotal role in generating research impact, which come from a variety of disciplines and universities. A sample subset can be found below.
