S A Partners would like to congratulate Cardiff University’s achievement in being ranked 5th best University in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), a national assessment of research quality by the four UK funding bodies, placing it in the top ranks of research universities of the Russell Group.
For the first time, funding councils sought to measure the impact of research, asking how university research is helping to tackle major challenges facing society, the economy and the environment. Cardiff ranked 2nd in the UK for the impact of research as measured in the REF 2014, with breakthroughs in a number of important research areas.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Colin Riordan said: “This extraordinary achievement marks us out as a world leader and puts Cardiff on the map globally and nationally. We are an extremely ambitious and innovative University and we are not afraid to set challenging goals.”
S A Partners’ training, education and coaching programmes are aligned to and accredited by Cardiff University’s Lean Competency System (LCS). We look forward to a continuing partnership with this world-class University in future years.
