Target Audience: All staff involved in costing research projects, approving costings of research projects, or managing departmental/faculty finances in relation to research.
This course is about improving the financial return to the University, Faculty and Department when costing research projects, whoever the funder. It starts by describing the different cost elements of a research project, and then defines two measures of financial return - cost recovery and recovery rate. As these are affected by how the project is costed and by the pricing template used, strategies for improving recovery with respect to different funders are elucidated.
Participants should learn:
- The importance of cost recovery to the University, Faculty and Department
- The different types of cost associated with research projects
- How cost recovery is measured
- How recovery can be improved
- What further information resources are available
