The briefing is relevant to all staff involved in research grants, particularly those new to the University or wishing to increase their understanding of University policy and its impact on research grants. Content includes:

  •  Clarity on definitions of Direct costs and Indirect costs
  •  What the PI should be aware of at application stage
  •  What information might the Head of Department need to know before approving the application
  •  What questions the Departmental Administrator may ask before submitting the application
  •  How the Income Allocation Policy apportions overheads between the Department and the University

This briefing is about the theory to costing a project and the University’s policies which may affect pricing, it is not a practical training session on how to use X5.
