Researchfish - reporting HDR UK's scientific outputs
We ask all HDR UK members to report on their outputs annually through the online reporting system, Researchfish. This is used to demonstrate the impact that HDR UK research and innovation is having in improving people's lives.
The next Researchfish submission window opens on 6th February 2023 and closes at 16:00 on 16th March 2023. Please make sure you log your Health Data Research UK outputs for the 2022 calendar year by the 10 March 2023 – that may be work relating to a National Priority (including a National Implementation Project), Sprint Exemplar Project, HDR UK Rutherford Fund Fellowship or UKRI Innovation Fellowship, etc.
If you are a PI (Principal Investigator) for a Sprint Exemplar, HDR UK Rutherford Fund Fellowship or UKRI Innovation Fellowship, you will have received notification directly from Researchfish or the Medical Research Council about how to report. This will be the standard “one person reporting on one project” set-up.
If you are involved in National Priority research, the reporting system will work a little differently: rather than reporting by Site, these outputs will be reported by National Priority. The “PI” for each National Priority is a Research Director. They will delegate responsibility (by adding a number of ‘Delegates’ to their ‘Award’) within Researchfish to colleagues across the UK to report on activities underway in each National Priority. If needed, each ‘delegate’ can invite additional members of staff (‘Team Members’) to report against their projects. Once outputs have been reported across Sites for each National Priority, Research Directors will submit all outputs for their National Priorities from across the UK.
After the 16th March 2023 (submission deadline), outputs from all Health Data Research UK activities, will be brought together and analysed as One Institute. This information will be used in many ways to help communicate Health Data Research UK’s impact, e.g. to our funders, the public, our research and innovation community etc.
