A public body known as the University Grants
Committee (UGC), responsible for distribut-
ing funds for research to British universities,
conducted its first `research assessment exercise'
(RAE) in 1986. The declared aim was to evalu-
ate the strengths and weaknesses of research
in different fields and different universities,
in order to decide where money for research
would be most effectively spent. A second UK
RAE followed in 1989. In 1990 I left the UK
for Scandinavia and so missed RAEs three and
four. I also missed a change of hands from
the UGC to the Higher Education Funding
Council for England (HEFCE), the Scottish
Funding Council (SFC), the Higher Education
Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW) and the
Department for Employment and Learning,
Northern Ireland (DEL). For UK university
