During and after the award

Any request for a variation of terms arising during the grant (eg a no-cost extension, maternity leave etc), must be discussed in advance with the Director. The Trustees will not normally entertain requests for an increase in the amount of grants.

The Director should be consulted before viring funds between different cost headings of the grant; no more than 10% of the grant may be vired in this way.

Successful applicants should acknowledge the grant from the Trust in any publications resulting from work supported by the Trust and display the Trust’s logo wherever appropriate.

A report is required at the end of the project, and sometimes beforehand.

Repayment of all or part of the grant may be required by the Trust if the conditions attaching to the grant have not been fulfilled.

At the end of the grant, any unspent grant is returned to the Trust for the benefit of future applicants.

In the case of grants made to University Departments, the Trust has agreed that its ownership of Intellectual Property Rights will be vested in the University. In return the University will pay the Trust a share of any income arising from the project on an agreed pro rata basis. Payments made by the University to the investigator and his or her Department under its revenue-sharing scheme will be based on the University’s net share of any income. Any negotiations about IPR will be handled by Cambridge Enterprise.
