About the Research Risk Profiler

The Research Risk Profiler (RRP) is a simple questionnaire that helps researchers to navigate an increasingly complex risk and compliance landscape. The 15-minute questionnaire allows researchers to model a range of risk profiles when setting up their research project and identify where projects will require additional time to set up.

Speaking about the Research Risk Profiler last year Colette Fagan said:

‘The Research Risk Profiler is a tool that will help researchers, at any stage of the academic career, to navigate the potential pitfalls of a changing funding and legal landscape quickly and easily. Investing just a few minutes at the start of a project has the potential to save weeks further down the road.’

Case Study

You can read more about the practical applications of the Research Risk Profiler in a short case study.

In this piece Dr Polyanna Bispo, a senior lecturer in physical geography, talks about how she used the RRP when preparing a grant submission for the UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship Scheme.
