We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.


Research Grants Handbook

The Research Grants Handbook describes STFC's research grant funding arrangements and the terms and conditions that apply to all Research Council grants funded on the basis of full economic costs (fEC), calculated in accordance with the Transparent Approach to Costing (TRAC) methodology (universities and other higher education bodies) or by an equivalent methodology by other Research Organisations.

This document sets out the application procedures and eligibility requirements, outlines the funding available to grant-holders, and details the responsibilities of STFC and grant-holders.

This document is kept under constant review and may be revised at any time to reflect changes to policy, funding arrangements, or terms and conditions.
