Consultancy Services in research assessment and research excellence for Higher Education Institutions in preparation for the next Research Excellence Framework

We offer consultancy advice exclusively from senior academics who were members of previous REF sub-panels, and many also have RAE panel experience.  Over the last 6 years through our former company, REF2020 Consulting,  we have delivered outputs, impact case study and environment template assessments as well as workshops, seminars, presentations, panel sessions and strategic planning advice.  Our clients have included 30 Universities from all of the UK mission groups, plus an overseas institution and a professional society.

​Our extensive experience allows consultancy work to be offered across the full range of health, biological and medical sciences covered by all Units of Assessment of Main Panel A in REF2021.  Limited consulting is also available for research covered by some Main Panels B disciplines, including Earth and Environmental Sciences, Engineering, Chemistry and Physics and Sports and Exercise Sciences in Main Panel C.
