Success in REF 2014

The results of the latest assessment of research performance, the Research Excellence Framework (REF) came out at midnight on 18th December. These results directly affect the amount of funding the department receives from central government (via HEFCE) and hence are extremely important.

We were therefore extremely pleased to see that 93% of the department’s research was rated as world-leading (4*) or internationally excellent (3*). 90% of our academic staff were included in the submission, demonstrating the strength and depth of the research going on within the department

Chemistry Research Colloquium – Dr Erwin Reisner – Cambridge University “Combining Concepts from Homogenous and Heterogeneous catalysis for Solar Fuel Synthesis”
