Project outputs

In 2013 the Research Councils undertook the first phase of a project to increase commonality in the way in which research outcomes are gathered, in response to feedback from the research community and as part of a wider move to greater harmonisation across the Councils. The second phase of the project was initiated in January 2014 to implement a common user experience for providers of research outcomes data, and finalise a common data model across the Research Councils. The project ended in December 2014, and the documents below provide a record of the progress of the work.
