As a move to harmonise further with other Research Councils, BBSRC will no longer require final reports. These used to be submitted by funded researchers at the end of a project.
This change will be implemented from 1 October 2013. Grants ending before 1 October will continue to require a final report to be submitted unless this requirement has previously been waived.
From 1 October, grant holders are expected to provide information on the outcomes of the research project via the Research Outcomes System (ROS) alone.
