Research Councils UK Excellence with impact
RCUK homepage


Research Councils support research through three principal mechanisms:

  • By providing project or programme funding to higher education institutions, as part of the dual support system.
  • By funding research in their own research facilities. The status of these facilities varies – some are located in universities, some are wholly owned and administered, while others are more independent, “sponsored” institutes;
  • By providing access to large facilities for UK researchers. This can be through international subscriptions or the funding of national facilities.
