Committees and Groups
This details the committees and groups responsible for our REF 2021 submission
Overall responsibility for the University’s engagement with the REF lies with the Principal of the University, who convenes the University Executive Group (UEG). This responsibility is delegated to the University’s Research and Knowledge Exchange Committee (RKEC), chaired by the Vice-Principal for Research, Knowledge Exchange and Wider Impact and thence to the REF Steering Group. The REF Steering Group reports to RKEC. The Vice-Principal for Research, Knowledge Exchange and Wider Impact updates UEG on a regular basis.
An overview of the planning, decision-making and reporting structure that was used to prepare the University’s REF submission can be viewed in Appendix 1 of the REF 2021 Code of Practice.
