The four UK higher education funding bodies (Research England, the Scottish Funding Council, the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales, the Department for the Economy, NI) invited views on the assessment of people, culture and environment (PCE) in the Research Excellence Framework 2028 (REF 2028).
They invited respondents to outline the challenges and opportunities they saw in the changes to PCE assessment announced in the Initial decisions. Respondents were also invited to outline any concerns they may have had about this element of REF 2028 and suggest solutions to challenges and concerns identified.
Insights from these responses will be used to inform the development of this element of REF 2028.
