Cambridge Global Challenges



Jo Johnson, the Universities Minister, has issued a commission to provide more information about university achievements in serving the economy and society for the public, businesses and communities. On these pages, we will set out our approach and provide further information on the KEF metrics work as it evolves.

An initial call to submit evidence to the KEF metrics technical advisory group is now open. This calls for evidence on:

  • suitable existing and potential new metrics
  • how to ensure fair and meaningful comparison
  • appropriate forms of presenting the results.


Submissions should be made to If you have evidence in a form not suitable for email submission (e.g. because of size or format), please contact Hamish McAlpine, email, for advice.

Cambridge Global Challenges is a Strategic Research Initiative of the University of Cambridge that aims to enhance the contribution of its research towards addressing global challenges and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
