Data Sources

The data which is used to populate the website is taken from regular returns from each of the NIHR managing centres (NETSCC, CCF and the NIHR Academy). The data is collected from the different research management systems used by the different NIHR managing centres and aggregated into a central data warehouse which supports this website and NIHR reporting generally. As such, changes to the data are undertaken on the source system and usually by the research team themselves who have access to the appropriate research management system supplying their data. The NIHR welcomes the opportunity to ensure the data it presents is accurate and requests for data amendments which cannot be undertaken within the research management systems should be made using the feedback page.

It should be noted that the information provided to this website is updated on a quarterly basis; any changes made on the appropriate research management system will be transferred into the central data warehouse every three months (with the exception of data held on the NETSCC MIS which is refreshed daily). Where a more immediate update is required (i.e. an error on the record), please use the feedback form to indicate this and, in exceptional cases, efforts can be made to manually amend the data.
