A Review of QR Funding in English HEIs - Process and Impact

In 2013 the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and Universities UK commissioned PACEC Ltd and the Centre for Business Research (CBR), at the University of Cambridge, to review the quantitative and qualitative impacts of non-hypothecated research funding (quality related research funding or QR funding) and the institutional practices and procedures for its deployment and use. In 2011/12 HEFCE distributed around £1.6 billion of QR (mainstream and non-mainstream) to English Higher Education Institutions (HEIs).
