Our mainstream QR funding is allocated selectively according to quality. The documents below provide a more detailed breakdown of this grant and the other recurrent research funding elements. An explanation of how we calculate research funding can be found within our ‘How we fund research’ pages.
We have also provided a description of the source data we have used to calculate research funding for 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16.
