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.
