Oxford Brookes University's Research and Knowledge Exchange Strategy underpins the University’s strategic goal of being “committed to international and world-leading research that is exploited and disseminated for the benefit of our communities.”
We have strong foundations for our updated strategy which follows an excellent performance in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. It found that:
- 94% of our submitted research was internationally-recognised or better (up from 78% in 2008)
- 59% per cent was judged to be of ‘world leading’ quality or ‘internationally excellent’ (up from 36% in 2008)
- Quality-related research funding increased by 41% compared to a sector average increase of 3%.
