The Leadership Foundation for Higher Education (LF) are looking for an individual or team with the necessary technical skills to work with us to develop a web-based information Impact Toolkit for university research leaders.
The content material for the Impact Toolkit has already been developed and will include approximately 200 (A4) pages of text, tables and figures with internal hyperlinks to 45 section headings. A navigation menu has also been developed by the LF, the files for this are currently held in Microsoft Word format.
The LF would like to use the material to create a product that can be accessed by users across the sector, free of charge, through the Leadership Foundation website.
The product must be delivered by Tuesday 30 May 2017 to a budget of £10,000.
The purpose of the Impact Toolkit is to provide research leaders with the information and tools to support universities to maximise the impact of their research on society. This is an important goal for universities who are now assessed and awarded funds on the basis of the impact of their research.
The Impact Toolkit is designed to be an intuitive resource that users can easily access, read or download different sections that interest them and adapt the materials for their own use. For example, being able to copy material from the toolkit to an email or to PowerPoint to share with colleagues. It is important that the toolkit supports ease of information sharing across different platforms.
This tender is to commission a digitisation project that will transform the document-based Research Leader’s Impact Toolkit into a product that illustrates the content, provides logical and fluid navigation, and supports an effective and efficient user experience.
