TCCE is pleased to invite you to a discussion event on the recently completed REF. Comprising a series of short reflections on the nature and processes of the REF, followed by a wider conversation and debate, the purpose of the event is to invite TCCE member academics and those involved in the REF submission to meet informally to share experience, voice concerns and put forward recommendations for the future in a Chatham House rules environment. Given TCCE’s remit as connector between research and the creative and cultural industries, the event will focus on issues concerning both impact and research elements of the REF.

Topics for discussion may include:

  • Research: choice of academics to be submitted to the REF and the relationship between these and need for strong impact case studies, including ethical issues.
  • Impact: the relationship between types of institutions and the importance of impact, how impact case studies were chosen, the role and content of departmental impact statements, approaches to data collection
  • REF assessment panels
  • Future considerations

Chair: Professor Evelyn Welch, Vice Principal (Arts and Sciences), King’s College London.

Speakers will include Professor Carole-Anne Upton, Dean, School of Media and Performing Arts, Middlesex University, Professor Simon Shepherd, Deputy Principal, Central School of Speech and Drama and Professor David Cesarani, Research Chair in History, Royal Holloway, University of London.

Please note that this is a free event, open to TCCE members-only. Booking is essential.

Spaces are limited so we encourage you to book early.

We look forward to welcoming you for what will be a lively and fruitful discussion.
