Chief Executive Maddalaine Ansell is featured in coverage of Science Minister Jo Johnson’s speech to the HEFCE annual conference.
The Guardian story explains that, “Johnson… used his speech to unveil a new assessment framework for universities, which will measure how effectively universities commercialise their research. The knowledge exchange framework will sit as a third pillar alongside the teaching excellence framework, which measures teaching quality, and the research excellence framework, which assesses research outputs”.
Maddalaine Ansell, said: “The knowledge exchange framework must look beyond simply the commercialisation of research, patents and intellectual property, which are only one aspect of a much wider range of interactions between universities, businesses and communities, alongside entrepreneurial activity.”
