8am Playbook

The 8am Playbook is a daily early-morning email briefing sent to higher education and research policy leaders in the UK.

The service offers in-depth, critical analysis of the latest developments in higher education and research policy, and is informed by discussions with contacts at the heart of policymaking.

Every weekday during the academic term, the service delivers an analysis of a key recent development, from the latest REF guidance, to regulatory changes affecting universities, to international collaboration. Each daily edition also includes a round-up of higher education coverage from across that day’s national media, and a diary of upcoming scheduled policy announcements and events for the sector.

At a time of unprecedented threats and opportunities, the 8am Playbook helps university decision-makers strengthen their grip on a wide range of critical strategic issues. The service helps your institution make good decisions quickly—both at the top and down in the faculties and departments where many responsibilities now lie.

The 8am Playbook team monitors the institutions making policy; digs under the surface to provide objective briefings on new developments; and provides rapid, in depth analysis of major events.

You gain access to the 8am Playbook as a subscriber to our premium HE Research Professional News service.
