RCUK announced some time ago that they will be imposing sanctions for researchers who don’t make the annual submission. The sanctions imposed can; remove a researcher’s eligibility for future funding or withhold funds from active projects. After the submission period at the beginning of 2016, researchers have been issued with sanctions from the Research Councils for not making a submission. Thankfully, University of Stirling were fully compliant and none of our researchers have been sanctioned. PhD students are asked to make a submission, however there are no sanctions being applied yet.
Find out more on RCUK compliance and responsibilities here.
The University of Stirling had a very successful return in the last RCUK submission period with 100% submission rate for researchers and 100% for PhD students, which was above the UK average submission rates; 98% researchers and 88% PhD students.

You are asked to make a submission if you are an award holder of a current or previous funded grant or a PhD student funded by a studentship.
If you don’t already have one you will receive an invitation email from the funder asking you to set one up. If you have not received an email then go to Invitation Help.
We recommend that this is done regularly throughout the year to reduce time spent during the submission period. You can add outcomes and link them to awards at any time during the year. Find out how by watching the following help video.
The submit button will only appear when there is an active submission period. Once you have added the relevant outcomes and linked them to your awards you must press the submit button to complete the process.
If you don't have any new outcomes to submit then you are still required to press the submit button to meet the funder requirements.
The outcomes will be published in the public domain via Gateway to Research, please ensure that you don’t add anything that is not to be publicly visible.
