We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.

How this data differs from previous years

The figures published here are comparable to 2018-19.

The data is not comparable to years prior to 2018-19 as the methodology has changed – for example, in the past some councils took the number of applications received in a year and reported the decision of these. Instead we now look at the decisions made in a year, and what those decisions were, regardless of when the application was received.

This standardised approach enables UKRI to incorporate all the councils in a consistent and easily comparable way.

Individual council publications, and council award rate data publication sites are no longer updated.
