Future Research Alliance events:

Supporting evidence for art and design research outputs, a practical workshop
Friday 29th November 2019, Coventry University

This workshop will bring together members of the Research Alliance to explore what should be included as supporting information and what shouldn’t in REF submissions in a workshop format.

The workshop will review the new guidance on supporting information and include a presentation from Professor Lise Autogena, Sheffield Hallam University, a practice-based researcher on how she articulates her research with specific examples relating to the REF submission. Delegates will be asked to bring with them an example of supporting information they have submitted or intend to submit as part of their REF submission. Delegates will then review the material against the REF criteria in a mock panel review.
