The Knowledge Exchange Framework is set to arrive later this year. The new framework will measure knowledge exchange activity in higher education and aims to create better collaboration between businesses and the public. The newly created UK Research & Innovation are leading on putting the framework in place.

Our November conference is your chance to hear from senior figures, including Professor Trevor McMillan, Chair, KEF Steering Group. You will explore the new framework and look at how your institution can prepare for it.

Key issues to be addressed include:

  • Next steps for KEF in HE
  • Timeline for implementation of the framework and how your institution can prepare
  • What metrics will the new framework use?
  • Continuing successful collaborations between businesses and institutions
  • Learning from universities who do KE well

We will provide morning refreshments and a networking lunch. Please let us know about any special needs or dietary requirements.
