Stern Review of REF – Building on Success and Learning from Experience

The independent review of the process for assessing university research and allocating public funding has been published by Lord Stern.

President of the British Academy Lord Nicholas Stern was commissioned by the government to carry out the review of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) to ensure future university research funding is allocated more efficiently, offers greater rewards for excellent research and reduces the administrative burden on institutions.

The report makes a number of recommendations for future exercises, including the number of research active staff who should be entered, a broadening of the term ‘impact’ and new institutional-level assessment.
