Please tell us about the social, cultural and community events that you’ve been involved with by Tuesday 25th January.
BU is currently compiling the data for the annual Higher Education – Business & Community (HE-BCI) survey. Data returned is used to calculate our Higher Education Innovation Funding (HEIF) grant and feeds into our Knowledge Exchange Framework (KEF) submission, so it’s really important that we can provide an accurate picture.
We are asked to submit details of all social, cultural and community events designed for the external community – including both free and chargeable events – which took place between 1 August 2020 and 31 July 2021. Event types that should be returned include, but are not limited to:
- public lectures
- performance arts (dance, drama, music, etc)
- museum education
- events for schools and community groups
- festival activity
- media engagement.
Please note that we cannot return events such as open days, Student Union activity, widening participation activity, commercial conferences, talks for academic audiences etc.
All events that were part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science 2020 and the Cafe Scientifique series have been collated on your behalf centrally, so there is no need to add these.
If you have been involved with any other event which could be returned, please go to the HE-BCI Table 5 SharePoint site and input further details about the event. The deadline for entries is 25 January 2022.
The site contains further guidance about eligible activities and a set of FAQs. If you have any further questions, please contact Amanda Edwards
