Why is the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) conducted?

The RAE is part of the UGC's commitment to assessing the performance of the UGC-funded universities and is intended to encourage world-class research and drive excellence. The outcome of the RAE provides guidance for the universities' future developments in respect of pursuing research excellence. Further, the RAE results are used to inform the allocation of the Research Portion of the Block Grant to the UGC-funded universities.
