The future of research is not just about solving a ‘gap’ in knowledge or creating new knowledge through original contribution that is significant in a field or discipline. The new trend in research is towards playing a part in addressing the grand challenges of our lifetime, for generations to come. So as researchers we should be focusing on how to make an impact with our work to this end - how to transition from a seeker of knowledge into an influencer who transforms lives today, and into the future. To achieve this we have to appreciate how the world of research is changing, then to consider how to re-position our research into impact case studies. This requires strategic thinking and learning how to work with industries, professional bodies and communities. In short, one should not treat impactful research as a destination. It is an evolution from ideals into ideas and then turning those ideas into a reality that benefits the economy, society and our environment.
