Transfers of funds into other European countries is permitted under the Money Follows Researcher scheme, and allows researchers to take the remainder of their research grant to European countries where the Research Funding Organisation has signed up to the scheme. This applies only to research grants: Fellowships are excluded from the scheme. The balance of the directly incurred funds remaining on a research grant, excluding equipment, can normally be transferred to the new Research Organisation provided that:
The research grant will not be re-costed on transfer, and directly allocated, indirect and project studentship costs will not be transferred. Payments will be made to the new research organisation on the same basis as UK-based grants, normally quarterly.
