We are committed to publishing the funding decisions made by our panels, to help applicants and research organisations understand the relative position of their application and the range of all outcomes. This improved transparency will inform research organisations' demand management activity and promote improved quality of applications.

Funding decisions are the result of circumstances which are unique to that occasion. As a result there is no comparability between the funding cut-off levels between panels or between other research councils.

Below we have published our funding decisions since May 2018. The dates below indicate the month in which the decision data was released and published. Applications that are Reviewer Rejects, Office Rejects or RO Withdrawals are not included in the data, so these figures below cannot be used to calculate success rates for individual calls.
