Nowadays, the Bologna Process emphasizes qualitative rather than quantitative aspects in scientific research as well as the need to focus on practical challenges. In this context, we propose a research project funded by the Executive Agency for Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation Funding. The study proposes an analysis of the actual models of research impact and assesses the current strategies and mechanisms used by research institutions to promote and make research products more visible to the social community and the educational actors. In this paper we reflect about possible models of impact analysis existing in the scientific literature. This approach would help us to identify commonalities of interpretations and practice of all the actors involved in the research impact and to take an informed and proactive stance that responds to the fast-changing political, institutional and technological environment.
