Researchfish data collection exercise

06 Mar 2024

Researchers need to report by 4pm on Thursday, 14 March, plus further guidance

Researchfish is the online submission system which many funders, including UKRI, Cancer Research UK, Wellcome Trust and NIHR, use to collect and evaluate the outputs and outcomes of research projects.

Most funders that use Researchfish will require principal investigators and some funded students to report throughout the lifetime of an award and for some years after the project has ended.

The current Researchfish submission period is now open and any researchers invited to report on their research must do so by 4pm on Thursday, 14 March 2024.

What to do

Funders communicate directly with principal investigators and students via email to let them know what to report and when.

If you have received an email from a funder relating to Researchfish, you should accept the invitation link in the email and log into the Researchfish system.

Failure to complete a Researchfish return may result in sanctions being imposed by the funder. These sanctions include researchers losing their eligibility to be named as Principal or Co Investigator on further awards and payments on current grants being suspended.
