What we do with the outcomes information we've collected
UKRI uses information that researchers provide on the outputs, outcomes and impact of their UKRI-funded projects to report to, and engage with, both the government, the academic community and the wider public.
Below are some examples of what collecting the outcomes of its research enables UKRI to do:
The information collected is also used in a number of UKRI councils publications. Examples of where you can access these publications are available in our Use of researchfish data in publications 2009-2018 (PDF, 180KB) document.
Each year UKRI undertakes a number of analyses of all of the outcomes collected during a submission period. Below are two reports that look at major outcome types and submission compliance rates for UKRI-funded grants and studentships based on data collected during the 2019 submission period:
- UKRI Grants Outcomes Analysis Report 2019 (PDF, 277KB)
- UKRI Studentship Outcomes Analysis Report 2019 (PDF, 681KB)
The information collected is also used to highlight the impacts that research projects funded by UKRI Councils are having on the world around us. UKRI posts a number of the latest examples on our website.
Further examples of these can be found on individual UKRI councils webpages:
