Mapping the impact: Exploring the payback of arthritis research RAND Corporation document MG-862-ARC 2009

By: Steven Wooding, Edward Nason, Tony Starkey, Stephen Hanney, Jonathan Grant

“The decision of the Arthritis Research campaign (arc) to map its entire research portfolio and analyze the returns and outcomes associated with individual investments was ground-breaking.

The mapping tool had to be capable of producing data that would stand up to sophisticated analysis while imposing minimal time and cost burdens on administrators, researchers and data processors. The final tool took the form of a simple, tick-box-based Web questionnaire that took most researchers less than an hour to complete. The impact map generated by the tool enables arc to see the returns from individual grants and compare different types of grant. The charity intends to use accumulated data to inform its funding strategy and project Evaluation.”
