Scottish Funding for Research Research Excellence Grant The Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008 gave us a measure of the quality of research carried out in Scotland. Following RAE 2008, SFC replaced its Main Quality Research Grant and Research Development Foundation Grant with the Research Excellence Grant (REG) in academic year (AY) 2009-10. The funding model for REG accommodates the results of the RAE 2008, and continues to underpin the structure and value of the dual support system. In broad terms, developing the policy for REG was informed by these needs or requirements: In the indicative main grant letter for AY 2012-13, we announced an increase to REG of £10 million to £223 million. 2* research has been removed from the quality profile and the differential in the quality weighting adjusted matching quality weightings being applied elsewhere in the UK. SFC is reviewing the underlying model for the distribution of REG in advance of the Research Excellence Framework in 2014. Additional information
