Please note:

  • Fast track applications are submitted as a full proposal and undergo a one stage application process.
  • The data presented are for all calls that were completed during the financial year – a call is only considered to have completed when each application submitted has received a final outcome. Data within a financial year may therefore not reflect calls opened in that year which can result in the overall numbers of applications being inconsistent between years.
  • These data include both primary research and evidence synthesis applications.
