Higher Education Innovation Fund impact survey - Study C


HEFCE aims to support 'third stream' activities which enhance the contribution made by the higher education knowledge base to economic development and the strength and vitality of society. To inform the further development of our policies and funding in this area we commissioned Quotec Ltd together with SPRU at University of Sussex to undertake three studies into:

  1. Global Innovation Environments
  2. Experimental Third Stream Strategic Development Fund Projects
  3. Higher Education Innovation Fund Impact Survey.

This report, Higher Education Innovation Fund impact survey - Study C, is an initial review of the scale and scope of the outputs and impacts of activities funded under the Higher Education Innovation Fund (HEIF). It will help inform future third stream strategy and provide input for the Comprehensive Spending Review.

Of 128 English higher education institutions approached to complete the online HEIF Impact Survey, 76 responded; a response rate of 59%. The survey outputs indicated that HEIF funding has made a considerable contribution to higher education institutions' knowledge transfer activities and outputs.
