England: Proposal for Knowledge Exchange Framework

January 30, 2019

England in planning to launch a new Knowledge Exchange Framework (KEF). The aim of the KEF is to give comparable, benchmarked, and publicly-available performance information about higher education institutions’ knowledge exchange activities. It aims to provide more information about university achievements in serving the economy and society for the public, businesses and communities. This will allow universities to better understand and improve their own performance, as well as provide businesses and other users more information to help them access the world-class knowledge and expertise embedded in English universities.

The KEF metrics exercise aims to provide timely data that describes and compares institutional-level performance in knowledge exchange.

The development of KEF is led by Research England, continuing the work begun by the Higher Education Funding Council for England, based on a request from Government, which included KEF in the Government’s Industrial Strategy ‘Building a Britain fit for the future’ in November 2017.
