Dr Rosa Scoble, Head, Research Strategy and Evaluation Unit, Planning and Policy Department, Brunel University

After moving to the UK from Italy where she worked in a consultancy firm, Rosa enrolled and graduated from LSE with a degree in Management Sciences. At Brunel, she did a PhD on the RAE2001 before taking up the role of manager in the School of Information Systems, Computing and Mathematics. In 2006 she was appointed director of the University’s Research Assessment Exercise 2008 Office. She is currently Deputy Planning Director (Research & Resources), and as part of her role heads the Research Evaluation Unit. She is now playing a key role in Brunel’s preparations for the upcoming Research Excellence Framework, with a particular focus on the impact agenda. In 2009 Rosa ran a pilot study that has led to the development of BRIDE (Brunel Research Impact Device for Evaluation) based on HERG’s Payback Framework. Her work on impact and the development of BRIDE is contained in a research publication that analyses institutional strategies for capturing and enhancing the socio-economic impact of research.
