For immediate release, April 26th, 2019 – Kudos, the award-winning service for accelerating research impact, and Good for Kids, a healthy eating and activity program 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 Physical Activity for Everyone project showcase will maximize the engagement with and impact potential of the Good for Kids project.
The project profile is the first public output from Kudos Pro, a new platform – officially launching 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 program 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.
