Knowledge Exchange

Knowledge exchange (KE), defined by UK Research and Innovation as ‘the wide range of activities [higher education providers] undertake with partners’ is at the heart of all activities at the RNCM.

A student and tutor stand talking in front of a music stand holding clarinets as part of a class.

This might take the form of students performing in public concerts serving local, national, and international audiences; pre-tertiary school children participating in workshops or attending Junior RNCM, summer schools, and short courses; and staff sharing research, performances, and compositions with communities around the world.

The Knowledge Exchange Framework (KEF) sits alongside Research England’s Research Excellence Framework and Teaching Excellence Framework. It is an annual exercise benchmarking HEPs’ performance in KE activities and is measured through seven perspectives. To see recent RNCM engagement in these areas, visit the KEF3 dashboard.
