    Abstract

    A considerable sum of money is allocated to UK universities on the basis of Research Assessment Exercise performance. In this paper we analyse the two main funding models and discuss their shortcomings. We propose an alternative model which uses a proxy for international quality to determine payouts. It is shown that the different models have quite different implications for the focus of UK research.
