Image Main panel members for REF 2021 announced

The UK funding councils have named the first set of people who will oversee assessment in the next Research Excellence Framework.

The members of all four main panels and the first tranche of 34 sub-panel members will work with the funding councils to develop the REF assessment criteria during 2020. The panel members include researchers and individuals with expertise in the use and benefits of research, as well as members with an international perspective on the main panels, the funding councils said.

REF manager Kim Hackett told Research Fortnight that the funding councils had received an excellent response to the call for nominations, with more than 4,000 submitted.
