If you have UKRI funding you may be liable to sanctions if you do not have an exemption from reporting and do not report on your research outcomes.

These include:

  • being barred from being a principal or co-investigator on future UKRI-funded research projects
  • having undispersed payments on current research projects frozen.

This document contains our compliance and sanctions policy, which includes exceptions from sanctions.
