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

Decisions on competitive funding

This data provides the competitive funding decisions made by the nine UKRI constituent councils between April 1 2018 and March 31 2019.

It is a breakdown of data in the UKRI Annual Report and Accounts 2018-19 Annex A – Performance Metrics (PDF, 3.6MB) and additionally includes the Strength in Places Fund.

The data is available in two formats.

How this data differs from previous years

The figures published here are not comparable to previous years 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.

Following this publication, individual council publications, and council award rate data publication sites will no longer be updated.
