Terms and Conditions of Research England grant

Higher education providers (HEPs) in receipt of our funding must comply with terms and conditions. We have published terms and conditions for the period to 31 July 2020, available below.

The terms and conditions of Research England grant set out the formal relationship between UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and the HEPs that it funds, and their governing bodies and accountable officers, in relation to UKRI funds administered through Research England. 

These terms and conditions underpin the funding we provide to higher education providers and describes the assurance we rely on in discharging our funding responsibilities. These terms and conditions also reflect UKRI’s responsibility to provide annual assurances to Parliament that:

  • funds provided to us are being used for the purposes for which they were given (regularity)
  • risk management, control and governance in the higher education (HE) sector are effective (propriety)
  • economy, efficiency and effectiveness are being achieved (value for money).
