We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.

Grant ranking lists

As part of the Research Councils' collective objective of improving the transparency of peer review decisions, as from November 2013, we will be publishing ranked lists for our grant rounds. The lists will be published within one month of the final ranking decisions being made and will give an indication of the relative position of each proposal along with the cut off point for funding. Each ranking list will remain available on this web page for a year.

For STFC, there are a number of areas in which we are unable to provide a list due to the nature of our grants, for example our consolidated grants in astronomy, particle physics and nuclear physics are ranked by the constituent projects rather than by the grants themselves. For these, information on relative position will therefore be provided within the written feedback provided rather than on this webpage.
