The next Researchfish submission window opens on 7th February 2022 and closes at 16:00 on 17th March 2022. Please make sure you log your Health Data Research UK outputs for the 2021 calendar year by the deadline – 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 17th March 2022 (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, for instance, to support Health Data Research UK towards a successful quinquennial review.
