Register for this event

Join the NCCPE on 14th September to review new REF proposals and their implications for public engagement.

Draft guidance and panel criteria for REF 2021 were published for consultation in July. Following recommendations in the Stern review, this includes refreshed and updated guidance about the role of public engagement and how it will be assessed in the next exercise.  Building on a consultation event in February 2018, this event will provide an opportunity to review the draft guidance, to meet some of the main panel members and representatives from the REF team, and to comment on and contribute to the NCCPE’s consultation response.

Cost: £90 per person

The event will:

  • Provide an overview of the proposals and their implications for impacts arising from public engagement
  • Present our draft consultation response and its rationale
  • 'Road test' tools and resources to help HEIs with their planning for 2021
