What is REF?

The Research Excellence Framework 2021 (REF 2021) is used to assess the quality of UK research against international quality benchmarks. As you have engaged with the research we have produced at BCU you will be able to explain its benefits and impacts. The assessment results inform research quality league tables and international reputation of UK universities. The four UK higher education funding bodies use the REF results to distribute some £2 billion per year of public funding to universities.

Why do you need information from me?

Whilst researchers describe the underpinning research and the impact resulting from the application of their research, it is you the end-users of research and beneficiaries who provide the evidence of the impact and corroborate claims of the impact made.

What will the feedback be used for?

Independent evidence or corroboration of impact is essential to ensure that all universities are accountable for the use of public funding to deliver public benefit.

How long will you hold my data for?

We will hold all data submitted to BCU for seven years electronically or physically on our Birmingham city centre site.

Who will share my data with?

The evidence we collect is for the purpose of sharing with the REF 2021 assessment panel.
