Guardian: The government wants a Brexit deal on science and research, says Jo Johnson

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.”
