In doing so we can communicate the impact and benefits of our research to our supporters. This will help us to fundraise and to support further research. It also helps us develop and monitor our research strategy to ensure we are meeting our research objectives.
Researchfish is an online database developed to capture data on outputs and impacts of research. For researchers it provides a central database to report outputs and outcomes to multiple funders at one time. This information can be attributed to grants held with any funding organisations that use Researchfish. Please be aware that funders can only see information researchers have attributed to grants they fund.
In 2021 onwards we will be asking for Researchfish returns from current and previous grant holders during the Researchfish submission period (usually around February-March). If you have an ‘active’ grant held with us, or your grant has ended within the last five years we will contact you and invite you to submit data to Researchfish. If your grant was awarded in from 2020 or later, it is now a requirement to submit an annual submission to Researchfish, as part of our terms and conditions.
You will receive a notification from Children with Cancer UK and Researchfish if we require you to submit data. You will be sent an email from Researchfish asking you to accept an invitation to submit data.
Once you have accepted the invitation you will need to:
Submission of data is expected annually, within the defined Researchfish submission period. However, you can enter and amend information in your Researchfish account throughout the year. The 2021 Research submission period will be between 1 February and 11 March 2021. If any of your grant award information is incorrect, please contact the research grants team at firstname.lastname@example.org
We still require you to submit annual and final reports in order monitor the progress of your research. These reports also provide a lay narrative of your research, which enables us to communicate the progress of your research with our supporters. You will be reminded of when to submit your report, usually the two months after the anniversary of the start date of you grant and three months after the end of your grant.
