Research Excellence Framework 2021: Invitation to make further nominations to REF sub-panels

UKRI have launched a further call for nominations for appointments to the sub-panels for REF 2021, in order to meet specific expertise requirements identified by the sub-panels. Further assessors for accounting and finance are being sought.

BAFA, CDAF and CPAF are nominating bodies and we are asking those who are interested in being nominated to download and complete the form and return it to (with the subject: REF2021 Nomination) by 26 March 2020. We will then select nominees and make a submission by the UKRI deadline of 3 April 2020.

If you were nominated in 2017, there is no need to apply again - your nomination will be considered by Sub-panel 17 automatically.

Please do not be too modest - if you have the experience and willingness to serve on REF2021, please use the attached form to put yourself forward for consideration, or nominate a colleague (with their permission).
