What is the Interdisciplinary Advisory Panel and what is its role?
The Interdisciplinary Research Advisory Panel (IDAP) advises the REF team, REF panel chairs and the UK funding bodies on the approach to support the submission and assessment of interdisciplinary research (IDR) in the REF.
The panel will advise on whether it should have a specific role in the submissions and assessment phase of the next REF in summer 2018, following the completion of its initial work.

Recruitment process for IDAP
The IDAP has been constituted on the basis of nominations from the four national academies, UK funding bodies and Practice Research Advisory Group (providing specific advice on the inclusion of practice based research).
The process was designed to ensure nominations for individuals with interdisciplinary research expertise or experience from across the disciplinary spectrum.
The criteria are also intended to take account of a range of other factors including region and institution type.

Equality and diversity
All nominees were asked to provide anonymous equality and diversity information to allow the UK funding bodies to monitor the diversity of the pool of candidates and to compare it to the diversity of the appointed panel.
This will form part of equality and diversity monitoring that will take place throughout the REF process.
