Annual Research Review Exercise

The 2018/2019 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.  The deadline for proposing outputs and updating activities and impacts is midnight on the 31st January 2019.

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.
