Decisions on competitive funding


2018 to 2019 data

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

Excel data – competitive funding decisions 2018-19

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 decisions on 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.
