HEFCE closed at the end of March 2018. The information on this website is historical and is no longer maintained.
The HEFCE domain - www.hefce.ac.uk - 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.
David Sweeney, Director, HEFCE will be speaking at this event.
This seminar is scheduled to follow publication of this year's Research Excellence Framework (REF), the system by which the quality of research from UK HEIs is assessed - with significant implications for public funding for universities' research, for benchmarking, and for academic reputation.
