Researchfish: get ready for 2023 submissions window

October 19th, 2022

Researchfish is an online platform that allows researchers to report to funders on the outcomes and impact of their research.

It’s an essential tool supporting the university’s research strategy and helps us demonstrate the value of over £45 billion of funding to universities from government, donors and stakeholders.

Researchfish’s submissions opens on Monday 6 February 2023 and closes at 4pm on Thursday 16 March 2023.

Professor Neil Crout, interim Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Knowledge Exchange, said: “I am sure you are all super-excited to know this – but I’m afraid we need to do our bit to help our funders show that research investment is a good thing in the world!”

In 2022, the university achieved a 98.6% Researchfish compliance rate, with a 100% compliance for submissions related to UKRI research councils.

Professor Crout added: “I would like to thank colleagues for their continuing support and recognition that Researchfish allows us to demonstrate how investment in our world-class research links to impact that changes lives.”

By submitting such data, our researchers also raise the profile of their work, as Researchfish case studies inform reporting to government and other stakeholders.
