David Willetts, Minister for Universities and Science, has asked HEFCE to review the role of metrics in research assessment and management.
James Wilsdon, Professor of Science and Democracy at the Science Policy Research Unit, University of Sussex, will chair the review, supported by an independent steering group drawn from higher education institutions, research funders and national academies. The review will draw on evidence and ideas from a wide range of sources. A formal invitation to submit evidence will be issued shortly.
