Board and panel outcomes – NERC

UKRI publishes information about the funding decisions made by research council boards and panels.

This lets you find out how a grant application did compared with others assessed at the same board or panel meeting. It can also inform an organisation’s grant application activity and help improve the quality of applications.

NERC usually aims to publish outcomes within eight weeks of a meeting.

Further details about awarded grants are published on Gateway to Research which is updated monthly with newly awarded grants.

Comparing funding cut-off points

We make funding decisions in circumstances unique to each panel meeting. You should not compare the funding cut-off points made in different meetings.

We cannot consider challenges to, or enquiries about, decisions based on these comparisons.

You must wait for official confirmation before making any commitments against your award.
