Councils tighten rules for GCRF grant winners

Research council grantees are being made responsible for ensuring that their international partners are complying with grant terms and conditions, under revised guidance issued by Research Councils UK.

Grantees will be responsible for carrying out due diligence of third-party organisations that receive funding for joint research projects, according to a guidance document issued by RCUK on 31 July.

The document said that research organisations are accountable for “the conduct of the research, the use of public funds and for ensuring the proper financial management of grants” by collaborating organisations or other third parties.
