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.

7.5 Payment of Research Grant Funds

  • The funds awarded will be paid to the Research Organisation by profiled payments. These are predefined payments over the lifetime of the research grant based on an expected pattern of expenditure.
  • STFC reserves the right to amend the payment profile at its discretion. The Research Organisation will be advised, in advance, of any such change. Changes to payment profiles may affect the overall value of the grant.
  • Payments will start once STFC has received a completed start confirmation. The Research Organisation will receive one payment transaction in respect of all research grant profiles due for payment in each quarter. Payments will be made by Bankers Automated Clearing Services (BACS).
