ResearchFish is the system that UK Research Councils and other major funders use to collect information about the research they have funded.  The funders use this information to demonstrate what has been achieved and make the case for further funding.  See some examples of how funders use information from ResearchFish.

It’s vital that anyone who has been asked to make a submission to ResearchFish does so.  It is also a condition of funding, and funders may impose penalties if you do not make a submission when you should.

Please remember to press the submit button once you have updated your outcomes.

So far 34% of submissions have been completed and more than 3,900 new outcomes (research outputs, further funding, collaborations, engagement activities, etc) reported, but submissions are outstanding on over 1,300  awards.

For further information see the ResearchFish website or contact the ResearchFish helpdesk. Our Research and Innovation Service may also be able to help.

Some RCUK-funded postgraduate students are also required to report and will have received an email directly from RCUK if this is the case.  The sanctions mentioned above do not apply to postgraduate students.
