The countdown to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) is underway, with less than seven years remaining. Against this backdrop, public and private funders are increasingly demanding evidence of societal impact stemming from the grants they award. However, many institutional systems currently lack the data and capacity to effectively detect and report such impact - especially through an SDG lens. 

This is where Digital Science and its Dimensions provision can help, presenting an interconnected suite of tools for research discovery, evaluation, and funder reporting at both research output and grant level. The SDG classification 1 approach within the Dimensions dataset allows us to break down key measures, whilst aligning them with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Through this poster, we invite you to join us in a transformative journey through a vast data landscape encompassing over $2trillion of global grant funding, 130 million publications, global policy literature and an astounding 250 million online mentions of research. Our journey will look at the South African research landscape, focusing on research from South Africa.
