Summary of stated purpose

 

The aim of the Online Promotion of Research Expertise Toolkit is to help institutions identify whether their use of online channels in communicating information about the expertise of researchers within their organisation meets the needs of both business and wider communities, as well as the researchers themselves.

 

Output types
