Some proposals include resources provided by Project Partners. Resources to be provided by any Project Partners, whether in cash or in-kind contributions, should be clearly identified in the proposal. STFC will pay around 80% of the total costs of the project (depending on whether there are any Associated t Students and on the level of its contribution to any equipment) excluding the Project Partner contribution. Project Partner contributions in cash or in-kind should be seen as additional to the Research Councils' % contribution and are not considered part of the fEC of the project.
The STFC web site provides further details.
