KTO strongly encourages all faculty members who have prepared the last HKBU 2014 RAE and are preparing for our next RAE to attend this conference as most likely the next RAE will be based on UK's 2014 REF. In this conference, many committee members from UK's REF 2014 and 4* winners from UK will share on their successful experiences in preparing Research Impact case studies. In UK's REF 2014, Research Impacts accounted for 20% of the scores, so knowing how to get this 20% will help your next RAE achievement ascend from 2* to 3* and from 3* to 4*.
At KTO, we shall do our best to make your next RAE record the best Impact Research possible. We wish to make you a 4*.
So, please register for this free conference at HKU.

About the Conference:
Public engagement and the articulation of research impact to society have been moving up university agendas in the UK. In the UK Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014, “Impact” beyond academia carried a weighting of 20%. In Hong Kong, with the support of the University Grants Committee since 2009, higher education institutions have recognized the importance of knowledge exchange / knowledge transfer alongside teaching and research. Jointly organized by the University of Leeds and The University of Hong Kong, this conference seeks to discuss and analyze the complexities of shaping an impact agenda in higher education.
