The results of the first Knowledge Exchange Framework (KEF) have placed St George’s among the top STEM specialist institutions in the country.

Sitting alongside the Research Excellence Framework (REF) and the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), the KEF is the third pillar of university assessment. By scoring universities against strict criteria, it intends to enable institutions to better understand and improve their own performance.

The results of the 2021 KEF, published today, have shown that St George’s is ranked within the top 10% of STEM institutions for research partnerships and among the top 20% for working with business.

Speaking on the results, St George’s Principal, Professor Jenny Higham, said: “I am delighted to see the University being recognised for its knowledge exchange practices.

“As the UK’s health specialist university, we are proud to collaborate with academic and industry partners to improve health on a global scale. These scores place us among the top universities in the sector, demonstrating our continual ability achieve great results and set new standards for best practice in future.”
