Panel Outcomes

The Research Councils are all committed to publishing the funding decisions made by their various panels, in order to help applicants and research organisations understand the relative position of their application and the range of all outcomes. This improved transparency will inform RO demand management activity and promote improved quality of applications.

Please note that funding decisions are the result of a set of circumstances which are unique to that occasion. As a result there is no comparability between the funding cut-off levels evident in the different funding-decisions published by the seven Research Councils making up RCUK.

It would therefore not be valid to make comparisons between funding cut-off levels in:

  • different meetings of the same panel in a given Research Council
  • different meetings of different panels in a given Research Council
  • different meetings of different panels in different Research Councils

Enquiries or challenges to decisions founded on such comparisons will not be considered by Research Councils.
