This week UKRI have launched a single web portal for streamlined shorter grant and innovation applications, including guidance for researchers currently holding UKRI standard grants that wish to repurpose their funds for COVID-19. As of today (3rd April) they have updated their webpage on Impact of Coronavirus on UKRI-supported research.

Also, the UKRI data team are asking applicants who use the Joint Electronic Submissions (Je-S) System not include the words "Cov-19", "Covid-19" or "Coronavirus" in the Summary or Title sections, unless the application relates to proposed research in this area. This is because from a data analysis purposes, the inclusion of these words can skew the statistics of the type of research projects that are being submitted.
