An excellent researcher at doctoral or PhD level:

  • Develops awareness of the impact of research on wider society and of the impact of society, the environment and culture on research.
  • Understands concept of corporate social responsibility.

Looking ahead, a doctoral student can aim to become an excellent early-career researcher who:

  • Recognises, understands and appreciates the potential impact of research on society, the environment and culture.
  • Engages in dialogue with the community and/or relevant stakeholders.
  • Has deeper understanding of corporate social responsibility and acknowledges the impact of own role within it.
  • Is politically aware.

Note: These skills are identified in the UK Researcher Development Framework – where they appear as D3.5 Engagement and Impact: Society and Culture
