This project considered how improved benchmarking could be achieved from the existing TRAC data.
The good practice guide identifies how indicators of performance could be derived from TRAC data, and provides some reanalysis of the costs of supervision and training of postgraduate research students and the ‘Industry’ category of research activity to enable better comparisons of research performance in these areas.
The guide made a number of recommendations and proposals, some of which have already been implemented and some which will be explored further.
