AHRC World Class Labs success reporting

Closed 22 Dec 2023

Opened 6 Nov 2023


As part of AHRC’s regular reporting requirements, we gather data quarterly on major programmes, including our portfolio of projects funded through World Class Labs (WCL). This feeds into our monitoring of Measuring AHRC’s Success (MAS).  

This survey will enable you to provide us with high-level details on what your project has achieved, including how many jobs have been created and staff trained, how much additional funding the project has leveraged, and the number of events undertaken. We are also interested to read about the wider impact of the work.  

Following this initial request for data, we will be sending the survey to your project for completion on a quarterly basis. 


Why your views matter

The data from this survey will help us to report on and measure the success of the CapCo and CResCa investments. We will use the survey responses to identify impactful case studies and to share the success of these investments with internal and external stakeholders.

This survey will also be used to inform the World Class Labs impact evaluation being undertaken on behalf of AHRC by Technopolis.

All of this will help AHRC to make the case for the value of investment in infrastructure for the study and care of collections, with the aim of receiving greater funding for future calls. 

Results of the survey will be shared with respondents. 

What happens next

Feedback from World Class Labs projects will be used to inform the WCL Impact Evalusation and inform future infrastructure investments
