The British Academy

From artificial intelligence to climate change, from building prosperity to improving well-being – today’s complex challenges can only be resolved by deepening our insight into people, cultures and societies. We invest in researchers and projects across the UK and overseas, engage the public with fresh thinking and debates, and bring together scholars, government, business and civil society to influence policy for the benefit of everyone.

The aim of the scheme is to provide a comprehensive analysis of REF2021 Impact Case Studies in the SHAPE disciplines (social sciences, arts and humanities for people and the economy). For this research commission, the British Academy is working in association with the Academy of Social Sciences. The research to be commissioned here will provide a solid evidence base on which the British Academy and the Academy of Social Sciences, as well as others, can build upon to articulate the value of research in these disciplines with respect to the impact that they have on UK society and around the world. The overarching research question for this project is: What are the stories, successes and cumulative effects on people, the economy, policy and society of the impact of research in the SHAPE disciplines as demonstrated by the REF 2021 impact case study data?
