The four UK higher education funding bodies are consulting on detailed arrangements for research assessment in a second Research Excellence Framework.

The funding bodies will be holding consultation events during the consultation period. The events are open to delegates from higher education institutions (HEIs) and will outline the key consultation questions and proposals.

The events will provide an opportunity for institutions to raise any issues for clarification and discussion.

We will also be hosting a series of webinars that include key content from the consultation events. These are open to all interested parties.
