(It’s not) All about REF.

(It’s not) All about REF.

 

How preparing for REF can help with research.

 

The C3 Research Centre (Prof Ian Brown and Prof Neil Brownsword) will be delivering two sessions for our C3 members, to assist in understanding and preparing for REF for those who have practice-based aspects of their research. Linking to other related research contexts, such as AHRC criteria, we will focus on the two key elements that accompany the submission of research outputs for the REF submission and discuss the wider benefits for researchers in utilising them.

 

We particularly welcome those new to research, or the REF processes, as well as those who are more familiar or have been previously submitted to the REF. Indeed, those who have this experience will be invaluable in contributing to discussions on how the process was for them and lessons learnt.

 

  • Session 1: 300-word research statement
  • Date: 8th Feb 2023
  • Time: 14:00-15:30
  • Activity: Presentation and Workshop
  • Room: T005 Beacon

 

This session will focus on the requirements of the 300-word REF research statement, what role this plays in the submission and how the production of research statements can support the development of research.

 

If you would like some support in writing research statements, please bring along any written material that you may have on current research projects (at whatever stage they are at) as we will be using a workshop format to support each other in their development.

 

  • Session 2: Research Portfolio
  • Date: 15th March
  • Time: 14:00-15:30
  • Activity: Presentation and Workshop
  • Room: T005 Beacon

 

This session will focus on the requirements of the REF Research Portfolio, what role this plays in the submission and how the production of research portfolio material can support the development of research.

If you would like some support in producing the material for the Research Portfolio, please bring along any written and visual material that you may have on current research projects (at whatever stage they are at) as we will be using a workshop format to support each other in their development.
