Collection deadline: 4pm next Thursday 16 March 2017

The Research Councils and Cancer Research UK (CRUK) are running their research outputs collection round, to close next Thursday March 16 at 1600.  By this time all PIs and students who are in receipt of funding from the Research Councils, and all PIs who hold CRUK, BHF and NIHR funding, are expected to submit a comprehensive record of their outputs on Researchfish.  (NB requirement to report outputs for PIs is: life-time of an award and 5 years thereafter; and for students: lifetime of studentship and 3 years thereafter.)

Sanctions for non-compliance

  • Sanctions will apply to PIs who do not complete their submission by 16/3/17.  (Sanctions will not apply to students.)
  • RCUK policy – from 2016 sanctions apply across all research councils. Current grant monies held by a PI are stopped and PI is prevented from making further applications until a submission is made.
  • CRUK policy – grant monies stopped at institutional level if the University submission rate is below 90% of CRUK funded PIs (reinstated once the 90% threshold is reached).
  • NIHR policy - the researcher or trainee may become ineligible for consideration for further awards; payments may be withheld.

Further information: on RCUK and CRUK sanctions policies. NIHRs use of Researchfish is described on the NIHR website;
