Update to the UKRI fEC Grant and Training Grant Terms and Conditions
UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) has updated its fEC Grant Terms and Conditions and Training Grant Terms and Conditions.
In this revision UKRI has set out expectations relating to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, safeguarding, bullying and harassment and to guard against duplicate funding.
UKRI’s position relating to payment of costs for familial leave for fEC Grants has been clarified, and our policy position relating to sick leave has been amended on both fEC Grants and Training Grants.
A new condition relating to peer review has been introduced, which is intended to encourage researchers in receipt of UKRI funding to undertake a review where possible, reflecting peer review’s importance to the UKRI vision to ensure that world leading research and innovation continues to grow and flourish in the UK.
As part of this exercise supporting information which was previously included within the terms and conditions has been moved into an accompanying guidance document which should be read in conjunction with the updated fEC and Training Grant Terms and Conditions. UKRI has consulted with the UKRI Research Organisation Consultation Group regarding the impact of these changes.
The updated fEC and Training Grant Terms and Conditions will take effect from 28 June 2019 and are available at: https://www.ukri.org/funding/information-for-award-holders/grant-terms-and-conditions/
