UKRI has a responsibility to demonstrate the value and impact of research supported through public funding.
One of the ways we do this is by publishing the outputs of the projects we fund. We collate data of the following types of outputs.
Types of reported outputs
Research collaborations take the form of joint funding, exchanging expertise, access to wide ranging facilities and equipment, accessing datasets and working across different sectors. This relates to new collaborations reported after the award has started. One award can have many collaborations involving many collaborators.
International collaboration shows that researchers are collaborating with organisations around the world and gaining access to internationally competitive facilities and infrastructure.
Researchers engage with a wide variety of audiences and stakeholders to communicate research outcomes, disseminate knowledge, stimulate public awareness, and encourage public engagement and dialogue. The engagement activities help demonstrate the extent to which researchers are engaging with others including audiences outside academia.
Publications are used to disseminate the findings of research to a wider audience, increasing the visibility of research, the diffusion of knowledge and the advancement of research.
Other types of knowledge generation
Other knowledge generation includes artistic and creative outputs, research models and databases, software and technical products, research tools and methods, and medical products, interventions and clinical trials.
This data includes additional funding from UKRI and other funders to continue or advance the research.
This includes the generation of patents, copyrights and trademarks as an output of the research. This data does not include Innovate UK as its current online survey collects data on intellectual property used as part of the project.
The data is available in two formats.
Interactive dashboard – researchfish outputs
Interactive dashboards show different types of outputs including knowledge generation, collaborations, intellectual property, engagement activities and further funding.
Excel data – research and innovation outputs
These are summaries of the data, by output type.
