REF 2014: Newcastle Computing Science Research tops UK in Societal and Economic Impact
We are delighted to annouce that Newcastle's Computing Science department, which jointly hosts our CDT, has been recognised as the number one in the UK for research impact and is also now listed as the 9th best department in the UK ranking highly in all areas of the Research Excellence Framework (REF).
Research impact is assessed based on evidence that illustrates the impact that the research has had on economy, society, public policy, culture and the quality of life. Newcastle computer science submitted four case studies that were all ranked world-leading and no other University achieved marks as high as Newcastle. 89 UK universities submitted to the assessment, including all major universities.
