As you will know, in June 2023 Research England set out its ‘initial decisions and framework for consultation’ ahead of REF2028. These initial decisions have been overseen by Research England as part of the Future Research Assessment Programme (FRAP).
There is currently a call out for consultation on the FRAP with a deadline of early October. BISA will be drafting a response to this consultation. As part of this process, we would like to hear from all Heads of Department and Research Directors to gather thoughts on the FRAP proposals.
This forum will provide an opportunity to hear the overarching opinions expressed in our consultation questionnaire before we draft the response.
