While some of our funding is allocated on the basis of successful applications to funding schemes that are time-limited, the majority of our funds are distributed on the basis of research quality, and take into account the volume and relative cost of research in different areas.
This is called ‘quality-related research (QR) funding and is provided annually in the form of a ‘block grant’. Quality is measured in a periodic exercise known as the Research Excellence Framework (REF) which we administer on behalf of all four devolved higher education funding bodies. Research England funding supports HEPs research infrastructure and enables them to undertake ground-breaking research in keeping with their missions.
