How will additional assessors and user members of the REF panels be integrated into the assessment procedures?
The REF team will hold briefing events for additional assessors and users in advance of the assessment phase. In addition, all sub-panels (and main panels) will undertake calibration exercises of outputs and impacts towards the beginning of the assessment phase, fully involving the assessors as well as the panel members. Assessors will attend the meetings at which the material they have been involved in assessing is to be discussed.
