Data FAQs

What is the AMRC research expenditure database?

Our members' spending on research and other charitiable activities. Each year, our members report their spending in the previous financial year across four domains: research in the UK; overseas research; capital projects (including building and equipment over £50K); other charitable activities (eg welfare, support, care, education and information).

What is the AMRC research portfolio database?

Our members' portfolio of the research grants they fund. Each year, our members report their spending on individual grants they have awarded, identifying the institutions holding awards, types of grants and types of research. This data does not include all funding on capital projects, but does include information on awards to non-UK institutions.
