Excellence in Informatics Research

The Department submitted all 19 of its academic staff to the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, and again all 20 of its academic staff to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework.

In RAE 2008, our research activity was assessed according to five quality grades in terms of originality, significance and rigour:

  • 95% of our activity was judged to be of international quality,
  • 65% to be internationally excellent,
  • and 20% to be world leading!

This was the best quality profile of all Science and Engineering departments of the University, and equal third best of all departments.

In REF 2014, 95% of our activity were again judged to be of international quality, and 22.5% of our research outputs to be world leading.
