University awarded top rating from Research Councils UK

The University has received a top rating from Research Councils UK (RCUK) for its expenditure in relation to research grants, fellowships and doctoral training grants as well as ethics in Research.

The rating from RCUK Funding Assurance conducts periodic assessments of research institutions to confirm whether public funds are being used as intended, with accountability and regularity, while complying with ethical regulations and policies.

The University received the highest rating of ‘Substantial Assurance’ for both regularity of expenditure in relation to grants and compliance with policy and procedure in research integrity and ethics.

A significant achievement

Pro-Vice- Chancellor for Research and Impact, Professor Dinah Birch, said: “As far as we are aware, this is the first time a ‘substantial’ rating has been achieved by the University of Liverpool.

“This is a significant achievement and a great reflection on the quality of the work carried out by the Research Support Office and the PGR Student Team.”
