Researchfish is an external online system that collects details of research outcomes for a range of funders. This helps them track the impacts of their investments.

The 2019/20 data collection period was announced from 3 February to 4pm on 12 March 2020. This submission period is for the following funders:

  • Research Councils UK
  • British Heart Foundation
  • Cancer Research UK
  • Dunhill Medical Trust
  • MQ Transforming Mental Health
  • National Institute for Health Research
  • Rosetrees Trust

RIS is running a series of drop in sessions where academics and students can complete their Researchfish submissions and ask questions as they go. The remaining sessions are on:

  • Wednesday 4 March 14:15 – EB 0.9
  • Monday 9 March 12:15 – EB0.7

It is important to note that some funders will apply sanctions if a Researchfish return is not submitted by the deadline. These can apply to the individual, where a PI is ineligible to apply for further funding, or at an institutional level, where grant payments are withheld.
