Directors and Heads of Service (from both within and without the M25 Consortium) are invited to attend a Directors’ Briefing on the KEF, REF and TEF. Directors should feel free to send a deputy if unable to attend themselves.

This event will look at the latest information, opportunities and challenges for libraries and universities with regards the three excellence frameworks.  The Research Excellence Framework, the Teaching Excellence Framework and the latest Subject-level TEF, and the recent Knowledge Exchange Framework pilot.  All can, or have the potential to, affect the reputation and finances of institutions, but they can also be an opportunity for libraries to support their universities and demonstrate impact.
