Submitting information on a computer screeen

All HRB grant holders* who have:  

  • a HRB grant that ended on or after 1 January 2019 and  
  • a grant that was live on 1 September 2023  

must submit their research outcome information on the new Researchfish platform. (*Seen note below.)

While Researchfish allows for real-time monitoring of outputs and outcomes and researchers are encouraged to update their report throughout the year, the submission period is a specific six-week window every year where researchers will need to update and submit their information on the platform

The Researchfish reporting process is separate from the HRB Annual Reporting process and award holders will be asked to complete both, where appropriate.  More information is available on our FAQs page

*Note: There are some grant holders who are exempt from the submission requirement. These are holders of:

  • Summer scholarships,
  • Conference and Event Sponshoship scheme grants and
  • Grants for which we are not the lead funding agency.
