End of Award Report
The final payment on your award will be withheld until you have submitted an End of Award Report which meets the criteria laid down in the accompanying guidelines. Further research applications to the ESRC will not be accepted from any grant holder who has an outstanding End of Award Report.
Grant holders will be expected to provide an explanation in the final report where the use of funds has been significantly different from that anticipated at the start.
The report is a mandatory part of the evaluation process. You can download the End of Award Report form and guidance below.

You are required to submit an Impact Report 12 months after your award end date. This should be submitted via the Research Outcomes System (ROS).
You should also ensure the details of outputs and downloadable copies of outputs are uploaded via ROS. Where your nominated outputs are not available to download from ROS these should be emailed to email@example.com.
The report is a mandatory part of the evaluation process. Guidance on completing the Impact Report via ROS can be found below.

The Impact Record provides a simple, succinct way of recording any impacts that arise from your project, during or after the lifetime of the award.
It is not used in the evaluation of your project but may be taken into consideration in any future applications you submit to ESRC.
To update the Impact Record, log onto the Research Outcomes System. You should select 'Impact' and 'Impact Record' as the outcome type to add.
