Kudos and Good for Kids, a healthy eating and activity programme led by the New South Wales Government’s Hunter New England Population Health, have announced the launch of the first Kudos Pro 'project profile'.
The project profile is the first public output from Kudos Pro, a new platform – to be officially launched in summer 2019 – for planning, tracking and reporting on research engagement and impact activities. The Good for Kids team have participated in a pre-launch co-development phase through which they have now made public the first Kudos Pro project profile page. This page, which acts as a showcase for the project and its research objects and outputs, includes a summary of what the programme is about and why it is important, along with 'behind-the-research' perspectives from some of the researchers involved. Research outputs currently made more discoverable by the project profile include videos, slides, posters as well as publications.
“We really like the structure of the Kudos Pro project page, which makes it quick and easy for a research group to set up a simple project website,” said Matthew Mclaughlin, PhD Scholar at Good for Kids, Hunter New England Population Health. “The focus on what our project is about and why it is important helps to draw out the impact potential of our work, and I like that we can update this – and the links to project outputs – at any time. The ability to create a tailored dissemination plan, with specific activities and tasks assigned to our team, is also a key feature for us.”
