Target Audience: Staff who produce costings for research, approve such costings, or have responsibility for financial management of research

New guidelines were published by RKES in 2018 on costing and pricing of research proposals with a key focus on maximising research cost recovery for improving the financial sustainability of the university, faculties and departments. This course first reviews cost breakdown and measures of recovery, then demonstrates how costing affects recovery and what key actions one can take to maximise recovery, including taking into account how it may also affect income/price. The main pricing templates are covered - 100% FEC, 80% FEC, H2020, charity funding and industrial funding. A guide for those approving costings is also available. A description of the full set of online guidance materials will be given.

The speaker is Ian Dwyer, the member of RKES who led the production of the new guidelines.
