UKRI Future Leaders Fellowships - PI Response Guidance
17 February 2023
The decision on whether to respond or not by the applicant will not be recognised by the FLF Team until the PI response document or the decision not to respond is successfully submitted in the usual way, using the standard ‘Submit Document’ functionality within the Je- S System. [...] The FLF Team would therefore like to emphasise the importance regarding the timely submission of the electronic response document regardless of the applicants desire to respond or not. [...] UKRI has signed up to the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA); a key message of which is that the content of a paper is more important than the publication metrics or the identity of the journal in which it was published. [...] This document is three pages to get across to the panel why you should be funded, and is often the last document the panel will read as part of your proposal. [...] If your response does not meet the guidelines, the FLF Team will return it to you to amend.
