These terms and conditions relate to training grants. The Research Councils will apply these terms and conditions to training grants from 1 February 2014.
In 2005 the Research Councils published a harmonised set of core terms and conditions for those research grants funded on the basis of full economic costs (fEC). These terms and conditions were revised in the Spring of 2008 in the light of experience with fEC and other developments, and combined the terms and conditions for Research Grants with those for Fellowships into a single harmonised set.
