HEFCE/HEFCW new project to analyse REF case studies
News of a HEFCE/HEFCW commissioned project to analyse the impact of research:
“The objectives of this work are to:
- Make the impact case studies freely available in a form and format that will enable any researcher to carry out analysis, using a range of techniques and methods including automated text-mining. We envisage that this will be achieved through an online database of case studies.
- Carry out a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the impact case studies, to extract common themes and messages that will form evidence of the broad impact of higher education research on wider society.
The results of the project will be published in spring 2015.”
