Our Insights from REF2021 report
Insights from REF2021 reports the findings of an interrogation of the REF2021 impact and environment submissions to the chemistry unit of assessment, commissioned in 2022 by the Royal Society of Chemistry and conducted by Research Consulting Limited. It delves into the REF’s rich data set and highlights some of the varied contributions that chemical scientists at UK institutions make by driving new discoveries, developing new products, and transferring knowledge.
The report is structured around themes important to us and our community - from evidencing where chemistry is contributing to tackling global challenges to showcasing concrete efforts on making the chemistry workforce more inclusive.
The insights and examples in this report are an addition to our evidence base and will be used alongside a range of other sources and case studies from across the research landscape.
