About UCL impact

Find out about UCL impact and the work of the UCL Impact (Research & Institutional) team - previously the Research Impact Curation and Support (RICS) team.

As part of part of the Office of the Vice Provost for Research, Innovation & Global Engagement (RIGE), the UCL Impact (Research and Institutional) team provides a strategic overview of 'Impact' for UCL, maintains a searchable database of examples of impact flowing from UCL research, and develop initiatives – to support researchers, grant applications, fundraising activity, and media and promotion activities in relation to the Research Excellence Framework (REF).

The UCL REF team, also based in the Office of the Vice Provost (Research, Innovation & Global Engagement), is responsible for coordinating the preparation and submission of UCL’s REF data.
