title Research publisher Birmingham City University accessdate 2008-03-06 Following the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise conducted by the Higher Education Funding Council for England, the ''Birmingham Post'' reported that more than 70 per cent of research work submitted by Birmingham City University—including in business and management studies, education, English, social work and social policy, and town and country planning—was "officially recognised as of an international standard", and 15 per cent of that work was "rated as world leading". Its art and design submission was among the ten highest ranked in the country, and Birmingham Conservatoire was rated one of the top three conservatoires, and the best outside London. Warwick is top university for research in Midlands The university was ranked sixty-third based on average assessment scores.

Many projects are carried out in partnership with other university and health services, charities and private companies. http: www.iop.kcl.ac.uk iopweb blob downloads locator l_26_research_report_2008.pdf The 1904 committee recommended the creation of the University Grants Committee (University Grants Committee (UK)) which has evolved via the Universities Funding Council into the current higher education funding councils Higher Education Funding Council for England, Scottish Funding Council and Higher Education Funding Council for Wales. Other roles He has chaired the cell and molecular panel at the Wellcome Trust (2003–2004). He was a member of HEFCE (Higher Education Funding Council for England)’s Research Assessment Exercise panel for 2001 for hospital-based medicine and HEFCE’s strategic research committee (2003–2005).

History JISC was established on 1 April 1993 under the terms of letters of guidance from the Secretaries of State to the newly-established Higher Education Funding Councils for England (Higher Education Funding Council for England), Scotland (Scottish Funding Council) and Wales (Higher Education Funding Council for Wales), inviting them to establish a Joint Committee to deal with networking and specialist information services. JISC was to provide national vision and leadership for the benefit of the entire Higher Education sector. The organisation inherited the functions of the Information Systems Committee (ISC) and the Computer Board, which had served universities. An initial challenge was to support a much larger community of institutions, including the ex-polytechnics (New universities#Post-1992 universities that are former polytechnics) and higher education colleges (New universities#Post-1992 universities that are not former polytechnics). A review of JISC's work, commissioned by the Higher Education Funding Council for England under the chairmanship of Professor Sir Alan Wilson (Alan Wilson (academic)), was published in February 2011. One of the principal findings of the review was that there is no comparable body to JISC within the UK, and internationally its reputation is outstanding as a strategic leader and partner. The Review concluded that, "JISC is an invaluable national resource which has evolved in response to increasing demands over 20 years". However, the Review also recommended that, due to the breadth and complexity of JISC's activity, its structure, processes, projects, programmes and governance need to be simplified and reshaped: " i n an era of financial constraint, it is necessary to refocus activities around clearer priorities, and to ensure JISC operates with a sustainable financial model".
