Using annual Higher Education Business and Community Interaction surveys, our sister publication HE has looked at where universities might expect to rank in the upcoming Knowledge Exchange Framework.

The KEF, announced by former universities and science minister Jo Johnson in October 2017, will evaluate how well universities engage with industry and carry out knowledge exchange activities. It forms part of the government’s industrial strategy and could be used to allocate money to universities from the Higher Education Innovation Fund (Heif), a government scheme that will distribute £250 million per year by 2020-21. 

According to the results of HE’s mock KEF, traditional research-intensive universities can expect to strengthen their grip on UK funding.
