Our REF2021 preparations are supported by a two-part equality and privacy impact assessment (EPIA).

  • Part 1 covers the production of our Code of Practice.
  • Part 2 covers the REF2021 submission, including the selection of outputs and the composition of our REF2021 submission both by Unit of Assessment and the submission in its entirety as well as an analysis of declarations of individual circumstances.

The purpose of the EIPA is to make sure equality and diversity is embedded into all our REF2021 preparations and eventual submission.
