 HS&DR > Funded Researchers > Project outputs

We encourage research teams to disseminate their findings widely and to a broad range of audiences. We do, however, require research teams to inform us about all project outputs: written, audio/visual and electronic. This is relevant during the lifetime of the project and for three years after completion

The term output is an umbrella term which includes but is not limited to the final report; journal article; press release; media interview; conference abstract or presentation; dissemination event for research participants or newsletter.

This is not to suppress or alter your plans for publication, but it is important that we make the Department of Health aware, in advance, of published material. This is to allow time for the Department of Health's press officers to prepare for any implications the output might have on government policy in this area. In addition, the NIHR HS&DR Programme may wish to undertake wider communications activity surrounding a particular output.
