Welcome to the home page of Cardiff University’s Research Excellence Framework (REF).
This site has been designed to provide relevant and up to date information on the REF including how the REF will work, REF and Impact, REF timetable, Cardiff University’s REF Sub-Group and REF updates and news.
The REF will be a process of expert review, informed by indicators where appropriate. Expert sub-panels for each of 36 units of assessment (UOAs) will carry out the assessment, working under the guidance of four broad main panels.
This is a new feature of the 2014 Research Excellence Framework.
