Research Excellence Framework


Research Excellence Framework

The Research Excellence Framework (REF) is a system to asses the quality of research in the UK and its impact and application beyond academia. This process maintains transparency and accountability and, sets national benchmarks for allocation of future public funding and investment. The REF assessment process measures: the quality of research outputs; the impact of research beyond academia, and; the research environment.
