Annual Research Review Exercise

The Research Review Exercise (RRE) is a mandatory exercise, open all year round for eligible staff to propose outputs that they believe are likely to be judged 3* or 4* (world-leading or internationally excellent in terms of originality, significance and rigour) and to update activities and impact profiles in Pure.  

Interim RRE September 2019

In addition to the annual exercise and as part of our preparations for REF2021, an interim RRE has been scheduled in autumn 2019, with a deadline of 30 September 2019 for staff to propose outputs.  

The central RRE intranet pages provide useful information including the RRE Criteria and Working Methods, how to select outputs, activities and impact, the RRE timetable and a FAQs section.
