Many of HEFCE's functions will be continued by the Office for Students, the new regulator of higher education in England, and Research England, the new council within UK Research and Innovation.

The HEFCE domain - - will continue to function until September 2018. At this point we will close the site entirely and all its information will only be available from the National Web Archive.

This will cover data about:

  • society and the economy 

Data about the way the city functions will be sourced through: 

  • local and national open data resources
  • data streams from key infrastructure networks (energy, transport, water) and other relevant sensor networks (for example, weather and pollution data)
  • satellite data
  • ‘crowdsourcing’ from social media or through specialised apps. 

 The MK:Smart programme also includes a comprehensive set of educational and training initiatives, as well as innovative business and citizen engagement activities.
