Board & panel meeting outcomes

All the research councils publish information on the funding decisions made by their boards and panels so that applicants and research organisations can understand the relative position of their proposals compared with others assessed at the same board or panel meeting. Along with written feedback, we believe this will help applicants and research organisations improve the quality of their proposals.

Please see our peer review pages for details of our assessment process for MRC proposals.

The scoring structure (PDF, 81KB) for boards/panels runs from 1-10 and is used for all types of application at all review meetings. Whilst median scores of six and above are considered fundable, the funding cut-off is dependent on the available budget at any given meeting. It is not valid to make comparisons between different board or panel meetings.

Meeting outcome reports are published following each meeting - usually within four weeks. Applications are listed in numerical order within blocks according to: i) median score groups and ii) funding decision.

Please note that applications which are rejected after a triage or shortlisting meeting are not discussed in board or panel meetings, and therefore are not included in these lists.

You may also be interested to view the MRC success rates page, which contains details of research grant, fellowship, studentship and research organisation success rates.

Meeting outcome reports

Please note, only meeting outcomes from January 2018 onwards are kept on this page. For previous meetings please visit the meeting outcomes archive page.
