Research and innovation

London is a research powerhouse, with 47% of London’s research rated 4*(world-leading) in the REF2021 results, demonstrating the world-class outputs derived from research spend in the capital (£1.61bn from UKRI in 2020/21).  

We help our members navigate the research landscape, including the REF, KEF, research standards, and funding challenges. We also support members with international research collaborations.
