When we first built Beyond Results we started by asking: how can we achieve better impact from our research for those who use it?
We developed tools and approaches for that question, including key success principles for impact. In our organisation, many of these initial tools for impact have now become used routinely in the design and development of our research.
Alongside our work on impact, we also researched what a co-innovation approach for New Zealand could look like. In Primary Innovation(external link), we outline what this research programme involved and the main findings.
We are now looking to new horizons, and have developed a toolkit for designing and delivering transformative and transdisciplinary research programmes. The T-Platform Toolkit(external link) includes tools and approaches that we have used and adapted for the New Zealand and AgResearch context.
