Determine the appropriate price level

Guidelines on the appropriate price levels to be charged to different sponsors of research are provided in the University’s price matrix. The Research Support Office will provide assistance with determining the price level to be included in research grant applications.

It is recognised that it will take some time before all sponsors of research move from a culture of having to pay for research on a marginal cost basis to paying the full economic costs of research. As such, the University has produced guidelines to deal with research grant applications where it is unlikely that the sponsor would be prepared to pay the guideline price.The Research Support Office can provide guidance and advice with determining the price level to be included in grant applications.
