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.

About researchfish®

researchfish® (formerly MRC e-Val) is the system used to collect information on the outputs, outcomes and impacts that have arisen from MRC-funded research.

Principles of use

An outline of how the MRC will use the information you submit through researchfish®.

Data collection and compliance

The MRC will contact principal investigators, programme leaders and fellows annually during the period of the award and for at least five years after the award has terminated.

The researchfish® question set for MRC researchers

In September 2014, the five remaining research councils joined the MRC and STFC in using researchfish® to collect information on the outputs and impact of their research. To accommodate the addition of these extra research disciplines, some minor changes have been made to the question set.
