RCUK Outcomes Project Update

Ive just come from an update of the RCUK outcomes project.  I understand that the tender process is on hold pending a decision on the future of the project.  We were told that a decision was expected imminently. 

This does not affect the current work at the University of Glasgow as we are forging ahead with our discussions and trials for recording a wider range of research outcomes than we currently hold in core systems.  We want this information to inform our Research Strategy and Planning,  to help publicise deliverables, and for other surveys such as the Higher Education Business and Community Interaction Survey.  

Despite the details of what will be required for REF and RCUK  being unclear at present we will need to collate and manage data about these entities in some form. 

We are confident that our existing or new entity data capture mechanisms can be tweaked in future if necessary to fulfil requirements.

Any views welcome.
