The Research Excellence Framework (REF) assesses research across all university disciplines, looking at publications, impact and environment. Plans for the next REF are in their final stage of development, and HEFCE are consulting on 2 aspects of the process: the submissions universities will make and the panel criteria and working methods.

AMRC will be responding to the consultation, so please contact our Head of Research and Impact, Liz, to share your views and whether you are responding directly.
