BGU is delighted to join one of the 40 institutions selected to contribute to the forthcoming People, Culture and Environment (PCE) pilot exercise for REF 2029.

The new PCE dimension will be an important opportunity for universities to showcase the extent of their commitment to research and the breadth of their engagement. BGU’s research is well-established in staff scholarship, external engagement, as well as in the specialist and applied project work of its students.

BGU’s strong History team has been chosen by UKRI’s REF team to represent the University’s research community in the pilot. The work of history colleagues is broad ranging, with specialisms that include Military History, Local and Regional History, and Landscape History. History at BGU also supports a long-standing and valued place for the discipline of Archaeology, and also active engagement with the regional heritage sector and learned-society and amenity-group partners.

Interim Vice-Chancellor Professor Karen Stanton said: "We are honoured to take part in the People, Culture and Environment pilot for REF 2029. This pilot underscores our commitment to academic excellence and societal impact, and serves as a testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff, the strength and breadth of our research, and our engagement with the community.

“We are proud of our History team and their role in this initiative, and we look forward to demonstrating the value of our research."
