Future of Peer Review

18/05/2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Registration for this event has closed

By joining this workshop you are agreeing to follow the UKRN code of conduct.


Peer review remains the primary means by which we ensure the quality of research grants and outputs. However, no system is perfect. Peer review could be improved, and there are different schools of thought on how this could be achieved. This event – hosted jointly by UKRN and the Research on Research Institute – will include a series of talks that outline approaches that, in part, reflect these different schools of thought. A panel discussion will enable participants and speakers to explore the commonalities, differences and implications of these approaches
