LLAKES is pleased to launch this final report on the ISIKLE project which summarises the findings of the mixed-method evaluation of the work of ISIKLE over the two years from June 2020. The project was by funded by Research England and OfS to demonstrate and evaluate effective practices in student engagement in Knowledge Exchange activities to assess their economic and social benefits to individual students and to external partners and communities. The evaluation includes a Systematic Review of the literature on student knowledge exchange; narrative case studies of the innovations introduced on the ISIKLE sub-projects at UCL and University of Manchester; and both quantitative and qualitative evaluations of the impacts of the programmes on students and external partners.
