"I’m very passionate about working with scientists to increase the likelihood that their research has an impact in the real world.  I have written strategies for PML, delivered training and created bespoke tools to increase my colleagues’ understanding of the steps and tools that can help to generate impact as well as to evidence it.  "
Jenny Lockett joined PML in 2011 as Project Manager for two international research projects, working with multiple partners across the world.  She has worked on many subsequent projects across the PML science areas, at varying scales, and contributed to more than 7 successful, large funding proposals.  Since 2016 her role has evolved to Senior Impact Manager with a significant shift in focus to include leading the development and delivery of PML’s impact approach.   

Jenny has specialist knowledge and expertise of the NERC, national and global impact agenda, which she has used to develop a clear vision for Impact at PML to contribute to science and business objectives as well as research projects. This includes the development of the first PML Research Impact Plan which sits alongside the Science Plan.   

In this role she has ensured PML achieved the highest NERC-REF impact scores of all the NERC centres; has created innovative impact planning and tracking tools; delivered training and guided researchers to transform workflows to integrate impact generating and monitoring approaches.   

Her main impact duties are: leading and motivating a culture of impact; working within the needs and priorities of PML to strategically build capacity and capability across the organisation; supporting and facilitating the generation of impact; increasing awareness and communication of impact; coordinating stakeholder identification and engagement; monitoring, evaluating and recording impact; developing case studies, and tracking PML’s progress.
