Mr John Leigh

Research Administration Assistant

Phone number: +44 (0)121 204 3746
Room number: EAS School Centre, MB133

To assist in the preparation of the EAS submission for REF 2014 and to undertake other research activities as required.

The REF (Research Excellence Framework) is the system for assessing the quality of research within HEI’s, including the impact of that research and the quality of the research environment.  Aston’s submission, which must be made by the end of November 2013, will inform the allocation of research funding from HEFCE for the 5-year period from 2015-16.

My role involves gathering research information, maintaining databases (including the PURE repository) and the EAS REF intranet site and facilitating meetings and other events related to the REF submission.
