RAE 2008

The EAPRS laboratory was entered into the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise under Civil Engineering (UoA 27), the first time this research has been entered into the RAE. It achieved an excellent grading of 2.90 according to THES, with 70% deemed to be world leading or internationally excellent (25% 4* 45% 3*). This result is the second highest grading of any UoA return submitted by De Montfort University and is the only research group from a post-92 university to be positioned amongst the Russell group universities in UoA27.

This result is particularly noteworthy as the reseach has been funded primarily through external contract research income the majority of which is derived from European Space Agency contracts won in global competitive tender.
Professor P.A.M. Berry was entered as a lone submission being the only full time member of academic staff in the EAPRS laboratory.
