The 2013 HEPI-Elsevier Autumn Conference provides the first major opportunity for the UK research community to come together to discuss life after REF 2014.  

Delegates will be able to hear from, and discuss with, a range of senior HE leaders and policy-makers the impact of current research policy and funding.   

They will also have an opportunity to make an input into policy discussions on what needs to be done to ensure that UK universities maintain their research excellence at a time of fierce global competition. 

David Sweeney, HEFCE Director of Research, Innovation & Skills, will be speaking at this HEPI event.
