Two years ago, Koi Tū director and president of the International Science Council, Sir Peter Gluckman was appointed chair of the International Advisory Group (IAG) to give independent advice on the assessment of UK higher education research performance to the Future Research Assessment Programme (FRAP) via the FRAP Board.

Its report is released today alongside initial decisions from the FRAP Board.  The IAG’s role was to give an international perspective and to challenge officials on the high-level principles rather than to get into operational details.

The 32-page report details the considerations and discussions by the IAG. It makes 13 recommendations and provides additional commentary.
