2.4 Adherence to Terms and Conditions of Grant: The Host Institution and Grantholder must ensure that all Research Personnel comply with the Terms and Conditions of Grant.


3. Use of grant

3.1 Use of Grant: The Grant may only be used for Grant Activities and only for costs incurred during the Grant Period and in accordance with the terms of this section 3, unless agreed in advance with CRUK.

3.2 Eligible costs on Institute Core Grants: Institute Core Grants may be used to cover all reasonable operational and research costs, consistently with budgets approved from time-to-time with CRUK.

3.3 Eligible costs on all other Grants: For all Grants that are not Institute Core Grants, the Grant may be used to cover Direct Costs and, where specified in the GAL, Directly Allocated Costs. Host Institutions based in the UK may not use the Grant to cover Indirect Costs. Host Institutions based outside the UK may use a portion of the Grant to cover Indirect Costs only if specified in the GAL or otherwise approved in writing by CRUK.

3.4 Salaries: Salary allocation may be used to fund salary and individual employment entitlements for Research Personnel funded by the Grant including, where applicable, annual leave. In the UK, this includes the employer’s national insurance contribution and an employer’s pension contribution, at a rate no higher than that used by the USS or NHS scheme, and outside the UK, at rates no higher than contributions required by statute or available to other employees of the Host Institution at an equivalent level. Salary allocation must not be used:

  1. to offset any prior underfunding of a pension or superannuation scheme;

  2. to pay any bonus or merit awards;

  3. to cover any recruitment costs, including any student recruitment costs.

3.5 Studentship costs: Where the Grant funds a studentship, virement of funds from the amount allocated for the Studentship to other budget allocations is not permitted without prior approval from CRUK. Grants that include funds for a Studentship may be used to cover:

  1. a stipend set by CRUK (which must be paid to the student for the duration of the studentship) and any paid parental or long term sick leave benefits payable in accordance with CRUK’s Funding Policies and paragraph 3.6 below;

  2. the student’s running expenses;

  3. university fees at a rate no higher than the home/EU fees applied to students funded by UK Research Councils unless otherwise specified in the GAL; and

  4. college fees for the University of Oxford and University of Cambridge; and

  5. only those studentships approved as part of the original Application (ie. running expense and salary allocations may not be used to fund additional studentships).

3.6 Paid sick leave, parental leave and other long-term leave: Where the Grant funds an individual’s salary or stipend, and that individual takes parental leave or other long-term leave, the Grantholder must notify CRUK. The individual’s leave and paid leave entitlements are to be funded as follows:

  1. Occupational benefits for clinical trainees who must change employers in the course of their training: In recognition of UK-based clinical academic researchers having to change employers during their training, occupational benefits for all UK-based CRUK-funded Clinical Fellows and Clinical Research Training Fellows (ie. clinical PhD students) must be awarded in accordance with the ‘UK clinical academic training in Medicine and Dentistry: Principles and Obligations 2018’. This means that occupational benefits that have accrued as a result of continuous service of employment must be protected, notwithstanding any changes in employer from an NHS Trust/Board to an academic institution or vice versa. These include as a minimum all family and care-related leave and pay (not limited to gender or sexual orientation) and sick leave and pay (irrespective of disability status or health history). Redundancy benefits are not required to be covered other than in accordance with the new employer's ordinary practices;

  2. Paid leave costs for staff at CRUK Core Funded Institutes: Where the Grant that funds the individual’s salary or stipend is an Institute Core Grant, the Grant may be used to fund the individual’s paid leave entitlements (under paragraph 3.2);

  3. Paid sick leave entitlements for staff whose salaries are grant-funded: Paid sick leave entitlements may be charged to the Grant in accordance with the Host Institution’s usual policy. Where an individual’s salary is part-funded by the Grant, paid sick leave entitlements may be charged to the Grant on a pro-rata basis;

  4. Paid leave costs for non-clinical PhDs and MB PhD students where: the Grant funds a doctoral studentship; the student is not an employee of the Host Institution and not otherwise entitled to paid parental leave or paid long-term sick leave under the Host Institution’s policies, and the student takes sick leave or parental leave in the course of completing a CRUK-funded doctorate and while in receipt of a CRUK-funded stipend, the Grant must be used to fund paid leave entitlements for the doctoral student in accordance with CRUK’s Funding Policies. For the avoidance of doubt, this provision applies to non-clinical PhD students and MB PhD students while they are completing their doctorate and in receipt of a CRUK-funded stipend. (CRUK will not fund paid leave during the course of a student's undergraduate medical studies); and

  5. Paid parental leave for grant staff and all other paid leave entitlements: Except as set out in sections 3.6.2, 3.6.3 and 3.6.4, the Host Institution may not use the salary allocation for that individual (or any other part of the Grant) to fund the individual’s paid leave entitlements and may only use it to pay for cover for the vacant position. The Host Institution must ensure that the individual receives paid parental or other long-term leave entitlements in accordance with its policies for all employees (including without limitation Clinical Research Training Fellows (CRTFs)), and must bear the costs of those paid leave entitlements regardless of the fact that the employee’s salary is paid from the Grant. 

3.7 Research carried out in the NHS: Grantholders carrying out research in the NHS must ensure that all costs are attributed according to the AcoRD (Attributing the costs of heath & social care Research & Development) Guidelines, or equivalent.

3.8 Patient and volunteer costs: The Grant may be used to pay patient or volunteer travel and subsistence costs only as approved by CRUK (either in the Application or subsequently). CRUK will not pay for participation costs, including prizes or gift vouchers, for patients and volunteers. 

3.9 Equipment: Where the Grant includes funds for Equipment, the Host Institution must:

  1. only use those funds to purchase the items specified in the GAL and ensure they are used primarily for the Grant Activities during the Grant Period;

  2. have clearly defined procurement procedures and comply with them in procuring the Equipment funded by the Grant. The Grant may not be used to cover any taxes payable due to the Host Institution’s failure to claim relief on qualifying Equipment;

  3. repair or replace Equipment at the Host Institution’s cost if it is lost, damaged or destroyed during the Grant Period.

3.10 Ownership of Equipment: Any Equipment purchased using the Grant shall be owned by the Host Institution. Where the Host Institution is not a registered charity, at the end of the Grant Period, CRUK may require that the Host Institution pay CRUK an amount equal to the market value of the Equipment at the End Date assessed by an independent valuation expert approved by CRUK.

3.11 Access charges: CRUK will not pay access charges for use of Equipment funded by any Grant.

3.12 Transfer between budget allocations (virement): The Host Institution may freely transfer funds between the salary and running expenses budget allocations set out in the GAL provided that:

  1. transfers are not made without CRUK's prior written agreement:

    • from any amount allocated for the Grantholder’s or Principal Investigator’s salary;

    • to or from any amount allocated for Equipment, 

    • to or from any amount allocated for a Studentship; or

    • from the salary of any post unfilled for six (6) months or more unless the post is vacant due to an individual taking parental or long-term sick leave and the funds are being used to pay for cover for that individual (as per section 3.6.5);
  2. transferred funds are only used to cover:

    • the Direct Research Costs of the Grant Activities; or

    • costs incurred by Research Personnel travelling (via standard class) and attending conferences related to the Grant Activities; and

  3. all transfers between budget allocations are declared at each financial reconciliation.


4. Grant staff

4.1 Advertisements for grant staff: All advertisements for staff funded by the Grant must indicate that the research is funded by CRUK. The Host Institution is responsible for advertising posts and recruitment costs.

4.2 CRUK not an employer: CRUK does not employ the Grantholder or Research Personnel. The Host Institution must ensure that any necessary consultancy agreements or contracts of employment are issued in relation to the Grant, noting its obligations under section 12.1. CRUK accepts no responsibility for any costs or claims for which the Host Institution, Research Personnel or any Institution may be liable as an employer or otherwise including, without limitation, redundancy, compensation, dismissal or discrimination claims.

4.3 Grantholders and other Research Personnel on clinical Grants: The Host Institution must ensure all clinical Research Personnel hold honorary NHS clinical contracts (or equivalent, if based outside the UK) or honorary university contracts at the appropriate level. They must also have necessary professional registration, occupational health clearance and professional indemnity insurance. CRUK accepts no liability for any claim arising out of matters relating to fitness to practice.

4.4 Non-research responsibilities of fellowship holders: Unless otherwise agreed with CRUK, Host Institutions should ensure that CRUK fellows are able to dedicate at least 80 per cent of their working hours to the Grant Activities that are the subject of their fellowship Grant. Any other employment responsibilities assigned to a CRUK fellow should be limited to a maximum of 20 per cent of their working hours.  

4.5 Students: Where the Grant funds a studentship:

  1. Unless otherwise agreed with CRUK, students on Grants must be fully funded by the Grant and must be recruited at a time that allows them to complete their Studentship during the Grant Period.

  2. if agreed with their supervisor, students may spend up to 10 per cent of their time on teaching duties;

  3. where the Host Institution is part of a CRUK Centre, the Host Institution must ensure that all students at that Centre have access to the same training and benefits irrespective of whether they are funded through the Centre;

  4. CRUK will consider requests for exceptions for part-time students or students who elect to take parental or other long-term leave during their Studentship, in accordance with CRUK’s Flexible Research Careers Policies.

  5. The Grantholder and Host Institution must report (or ensure that the student reports) to CRUK, in the manner requested by CRUK from time to time, the following information about the Studentship:

    This information will be used to enable CRUK to communicate directly with the students, to provide them with access to training and networking events, to facilitate accurate reporting on their research and its outputs, and to enable CRUK to review and improve its training offering.

    • the student’s name, email address, project title and start date within thirty (30) days after the Start Date plus other information relevant to the Studentship that CRUK may request;
    • subject to applicable laws, equality, diversity and inclusion information regarding the student;

The Host Institution must account for all income and expenditure related to the Grant through a separate cost centre or, if it does not use cost centres, it must keep the Grant in a separate bank account used exclusively for the Grant funds.

7.2 Reconciliation of Grant: The Host Institution must submit a final reconciliation at the end of the Grant and, if requested by CRUK, an interim reconciliation. CRUK will process reconciliations as it reasonably sees fit. CRUK may recover any unspent Grant funds or ineligible costs and may offset any amounts owed to CRUK against any other sums (including any grant payments) owed to the Host Institution. The Host Institution must provide copies of invoices for the use of any Equipment funds along with the final reconciliation (or, if requested by CRUK, interim reconciliation).

7.3 Additional reconciliation provisions for Host Institutions based outside the UK: Unless otherwise agreed with CRUK, reconciliations must be submitted in pounds sterling. Where the Host Institution has incurred costs in a currency other than pounds sterling, in submitting its reconciliation, the Host Institution must apply the historical exchange rate quoted on for the date the GAL was issued (or any alternative third party exchange rate calculator or date notified by Cancer Research UK before processing the reconciliation). CRUK is not liable for any losses incurred by the Host Institution through currency fluctuations. Any actual gains made by the Host Institution as a result of currency fluctuations must be used for the purposes of the Grant Activities or paid to CRUK following the financial reconciliation of the Grant.

7.4 Audits and site visits: CRUK may seek confirmation from the Host Institution that the Grant has been used in accordance with the Terms and Conditions. CRUK (or its agents) may also conduct its own audit of the Grant at any time and the Host Institution shall co-operate fully in that regard, including by allowing CRUK to inspect all ledgers, records and facilities related to the Grant, by providing copies of all relevant ledgers, invoices and records on request, and by procuring that any subcontractors provide that assistance as well.

9.7 Change in status: The Host Institution and Grantholder must notify CRUK if there is any change their status, or the status of any Research Personnel, that may affect their eligibility to hold the Grant including, without limitation, a change of control or a change in relationship with any person or entity in the tobacco industry.

9.8 Change in Grantholder: If the Host Institution considers that it is untenable for legal, regulatory, ethical, practical or other reasons for one or more of the Grantholder(s) to continue on in their capacity of Grantholder, then it will notify CRUK of such decision, reason(s) and proposed replacement Grantholder(s). The Grant may be transferred to the replacement Grantholder(s) only with the prior written consent of CRUK and if the replacement Grantholder(s) agree in writing to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. The Host Institution will notify, and oversee a managed handover by, the outgoing Grantholder(s). 

9.9 Freedom of information requests: If the Host Institution receives a freedom of information request in relation to any part of the Grant or Grant Activities, it must notify and consult with CRUK on the response to the request.


10. Research involving the recruitment of human participants

10.1 Research involving the recruitment of human participants: the Host Institution and Grantholder must satisfy the requirements in the Policy for Research Involving the Recruitment of Human Participants where the research is in the Policy scope, including:

1. Registration of trials: The Grantholder must register any CRUK-funded or endorsed trial on a recognised trials registry such as the ISRCTN registry or the register before the first participant receives the first medical intervention in the trial. The Grantholder must notify CRUK of the registration number no later than the time of the subsequent scientific milestone report.

2. CRUK trials database: Grantholders and Research Personnel conducting trials and/or studies will assist the CRUK Patient Information Team by:

  • including the URL for CRUK’s clinical trials database ( on the patient information sheet. (Including the CRUK logo is also strongly encouraged);

  • providing CRUK with the study protocol and patient information sheet;

  • assisting CRUK to draft a lay summary of the trial (and findings, as and when Results are available) for inclusion on CRUK’s online clinical trials database and subsequently provide regular updates to the information so that the database can reasonably be kept up to date. 

3. Collection of NHS numbers: The NHS number (or equivalent) should be recorded for all patients or participants entering clinical trials supported by CRUK. The collection of NHS numbers is strongly encouraged in other research projects involving healthy volunteers and any other CRUK-supported study where long-term follow-up is likely. The purpose of this is to enable linkage between routine and clinical data sets. 

4. Reporting of results: Grantholders are required to make summary results (whether positive or negative) of their CRUK-funded or CRUK-endorsed trial publicly available, without unreasonable delay, and generally within 12 months after the end of research project (unless there is a scientifically justified longer time period). The results should be posted on the same registry as the trial was listed and the trials registry identifier should be used in publications to ensure the results are discoverable.

5. Making data sets accessible for further research: By publication of the primary analysis of the research project results, Grantholders are required to make their data sets available to other legitimate access requests for secondary academic research. They must ensure discoverability of the trial data set (for example through a suitable clinical trials data sharing respository) and have processes in place to manage data access requests and to achieve secure transfer of data where requests are granted. Data must be managed in accordance with our Policy on Data Sharing and Management.

  3. enter into a fair and appropriate revenue sharing agreement with CRUK (or, at CRUK’s request, CRH) in relation to any consideration received by the Host Institution for the rights to the clinical trial Results (which shall at least reimburse CRUK for the funding it provided in support of the trial).


12. Intellectual property

12.1 Funded Intellectual Property: Funded Intellectual Property shall, in the first instance, vest in the Host Institution. The Host Institution shall ensure that the contracts of employment or other terms of engagement of its Research Personnel provide for automatic and immediate vesting in the Host Institution of Funded Intellectual Property. The Host Institution shall co-operate fully and procure that its Research Personnel co-operate fully with CRUK and CRH in all matters relating to Funded Intellectual Property.

12.2 Technology Transfer Agreements: Following receipt of a request by CRH or CRUK, the Host Institution will negotiate and enter into a TTA with CRH in relation to Funded Intellectual Property in a timely fashion. In the event that or once there is no TTA in place, or until a TTA is put in place, Schedule A applies. In the event that there is a TTA in place between CRT and the Host Institution, the terms of such TTA shall supersede Schedule A from the date such agreement becomes effective. If the TTA will expire during the term of the Grant, the Host Institution agrees, at CRUK's request made at any time, to extend the term of the TTA (on terms materially similar to the expiring TTA). 

12.3 CDD Projects: Where the Grant Activities involve a CDD Project, the Host Institution will enter into a CDD Agreement. Until the CDD Agreement comes into effect, any Results generated by the Host Institution will be deemed to be Funded Intellectual Property and be subject to this section 12 and Schedule A. In the event that or once there is a CDD Agreement in place, the terms of the CDD Agreement shall supersede this section 11 and Schedule A from the date such CDD Agreement becomes effective. Results arising from CDD Projects are confidential and should not be disclosed without the prior consent of CRUK.

13. Engagement, publicity and publication

13.1 Responsibility to act as peer reviewer when requested by CRUK: The Grantholder and Research Personnel will respond positively and punctually to requests from CRUK to peer review CRUK grant applications.

13.2 Participation in fundraising and publicity: CRUK may use data or other material from research it funds for the purposes of fundraising, publicity, public and community education and engagement, health practitioner education, policy advice and lobbying activities. The Grantholder and CRUK-funded Research Personnel will promote CRUK and its charitable aims by complying with all reasonable requests from CRUK to attend or speak at events, and provide help with images and copy for CRUK publications. The Host Institution will also co-operate in relation to publicity, research engagement and fundraising activity for CRUK. Where CRUK is the largest or most significant contributing funder of the research, it reserves the right to lead on publicity.

13.3 Press: The Grantholder and Host Institution must contact the CRUK Press Office before making any public announcements regarding the Grant Activities, results or other research outputs, especially in the case of clinical trials. On request, a copy of any upcoming paper with CRUK funding must be shared with the press team at the time of journal submission or when an abstract has been accepted by a conference. When speaking publicly, the Grantholder and Research Personnel should identify themselves as ‘CRUK-funded researchers’ but be clear that they are not speaking on behalf of CRUK.

13.4 Branding, Communications and Engagement: Grantholders and Host Institutions must comply with any guidelines for branding, communications and engagement that CRUK may issue from time to time. Host Institutions should ensure that prominent CRUK branding is displayed in CRUK-funded Centres, ECMCs, CRUK Core Funded Institutes and any other place where a major programme of work is funded by CRUK.

13.5 Acknowledgment of CRUK support: Grantholders must acknowledge CRUK’s support (and, where possible, include CRUK’s logo) in all research outputs, including publications, oral or written reports, posters, presentations and information posted on websites that relate to the Grant Activities or Results.

13.6 Publishable abstracts: At the time of application, grant applicants must provide publishable information about the proposed research and contact information which, if the application is successful, may be published on CRUK’s website, the website of any partner funder also contributing to the grant scheme, and other public databases including, without limitation, the International Cancer Research Partnership.

13.7 Dissemination of findings: The Grantholder must publish or otherwise disseminate appropriately verified Results to the broader scientific community as soon as possible, although CRUK or the Host Institution may delay dissemination for a reasonable period in order to protect intellectual property (including through compliance with a TTA, or Schedule A, as applicable). 

13.8 Requirements for publications and other outputs: Grantholders must:

  1. provide the CRUK Press Team with a copy of all publications and conference abstracts arising from the Grant Activities at the time of submission for publication via the online manuscript submission form on CRUK’s website or Any manuscripts and details will be held in the strictest confidence.

  2. acknowledge CRUK’s support in the format ‘This work was supported by Cancer Research UK [C ref./A ref.] or [XXXX\123456]’) and, for trial results, the CRUK trial number; and

  3. comply with the requirements of CRUK's Policy on Open Access including ensuring research is made openly available immediately on publication and that a copy of each paper published in a peer reviewed journal funded wholly or partly by the Grant is deposited in Europe PubMed Central, where an article processing charge has been paid to the journal for deposit, with a CC-BY licence. Requirements on patient data citations and data availability statements must be complied with; 

  4. ensure that appropriate validation of results have been carried out before dissemination;

  5. on request, provide a copy of the presentation, publication or other output to CRH in good time (and in any event at least thirty (30) days) before the presentation, publication or other dissemination in the case of Results, whether patentable or not, which appear to be suitable for commercial exploitation or otherwise worthy of protection; and

  6. liaise with the Cancer Research Horizons Team and/or the CDD where required by sections 12 and 13.9.

13.9 CDD Projects: Subject to any CDD Agreement, Grantholders must not publish or disclose any work relating to a CDD Project without the CDD’s prior written consent. Grantholders should also consult the CDD as to who should be included in the list of authors. Media disclosures regarding CDD Projects and trials must be discussed with and approved by in advance the Director of the CDD (as well as the CRUK Press Office as per section 13.3).


14. Transfer, viariation, suspension and termination

14.1 Transfer of Grant: The Grantholder may transfer the Grant to another institution only with the consent of the Host Institution, the new institution and CRUK, and only if the new institution agrees in writing to be bound by the Terms and Conditions as the new Host Institution. CRUK may require that Equipment funded by the Grant is transferred with the Grantholder.

14.2 Variation: CRUK may amend the Terms and Conditions of Application and Grant at any time.

Schedule A. Conditions for host institutions with no technology transfer agreement with CRUK or CRH

  1. Non-commercial research: The Host Institution grants CRUK free of charge, the worldwide and non-exclusive right itself, or by granting to recipients of CRUK funding the right, to use Funded Intellectual Property for the purposes of non-commercial research whether alone or in collaboration with third parties and whether sponsored or funded, in whole or in part, by any third party including any commercial entity.

  2. Identifying Funded Intellectual Property: The Host Institution shall allow CRH to visit its premises and to liaise freely and at will with its Research Personnel for the purpose of identifying Funded Intellectual Property. In addition, promptly following the identification by the Host Institution (or its agent) of any Funded Intellectual Property which appears to the Host Institution to have potential to be translated to deliver patient benefit or which can otherwise be exploited commercially, the Host Institution shall notify CRH in writing giving full details of such Funded Intellectual Property.

  3. Prior notification of CRH: CRH must be notified in good time (and in any event at least thirty (30) days) before either presentation or publication of any Results, whether patentable or not, which appear to be suitable for commercial exploitation or that are otherwise worthy of protection. At CRH’s request, the presentation or publication of Results will be delayed to enable the protection of Funded Intellectual Property.

  4. Protection of Funded Intellectual Property: The Host Institution shall, in consultation with CRH, take the steps necessary to protect Funded Intellectual Property as is reasonable to do so with regard to commercial considerations, however it shall not make (or permit others to make) any application for registered protection (including a patent) in connection with Funded Intellectual Property without the prior written consent of CRH.

  5. Assignment to CRH if protection withdrawn or abandoned: If the Host Institution decides to withdraw or abandon patent or similar protection in respect of Funded Intellectual Property, CRH shall be entitled to take an assignment of the property concerned and the Host Institution shall give CRH no less than sixty (60) days’ notice to allow it to do so effectively.

  6. No exploitation without prior consent: The Host Institution may not exploit, or grant any third parties the right to exploit, Funded Intellectual Property without the prior written consent of CRH. Where CRH consents to such exploitation, it may impose such conditions as it sees fit.

  7. Right to call for assignment to CRH: CRUK retains the right to call for an assignment to CRH of all Funded Intellectual Property. Such right is likely only to be exercised rarely. After such an assignment has been completed CRH and the Host Institution shall negotiate in good faith to agree the terms of a revenue share agreement in respect of net income received by CRH arising from the commercial exploitation of such Funded Intellectual Property.

  8. Commercial exploitation without consent: If, notwithstanding the prohibition in section 6 of this Schedule A, Funded Intellectual Property is exploited commercially without CRH’s prior written consent, without affecting any other rights of CRUK or CRH, the Host Institution shall:

    1. pay or transfer (as appropriate) to CRH sixty percent (60%) of all gross income and any other sums (whether in cash or otherwise) received by the Host Institution (or by any third party authorised by the Host Institution) from the exploitation of the Funded Intellectual Property, without any deduction of any costs, taxes or any other sums. However, if: (i) a third party contributes towards the directly incurred costs of the research which led to the creation of the Funded Intellectual Property; or (ii) CRUK provides additional funding (over and above the directly incurred costs), then the foregoing revenue share shall be adjusted as CRH deems appropriate;

    2. account to CRH for its revenue share on a quarterly basis, in pounds sterling;

    3. be solely responsible for rewarding the inventors of Funded Intellectual Property out of its share of gross income;

    4. provide CRH with a quarterly statement summarising all income received and costs incurred; and

    5. ensure that proper books and records are kept (recording all exploitation activities and all income received/costs incurred) and allow CRH access to such books and records as CRH may reasonably request from time to time.

  9. Transfer of samples: CRUK encourages the transfer of samples of Funded Materials to academic and other not-for-profit third parties solely for the purposes of non-commercial research, under the terms of a material transfer agreement. The Host Institution may not transfer Funded Materials to any commercial entity without CRH’s prior written consent.

  10. Retention of agreements: The Host Institution shall retain copies of all agreements (including collaboration agreements, material transfer agreements and confidential disclosure agreements) proposed and/or completed relating to Funded Intellectual Property. The Host Institution shall provide CRH with copies of such agreements as CRH may request from time to time.

  11. CRH contact: For further details contact the Cancer Research Horizons Team:

  12. Definitions: The definitions set out in section 17 of the Grant Conditions apply to this Schedule A.


Schedule B. Conditions for policy, information and communications targeted research projects

  1. Application: The conditions in this Schedule B apply where a Grant is identified in the GAL as ‘targeted research’, in addition to the Grant Conditions and other Terms and Conditions. 

  2. Intellectual property: For PIC targeted research projects, sections 12.2 and 12.3 of and Schedule A to the Grant Conditions shall not apply to the Funded Intellectual Property. Section 12.1 of the Grant Conditions shall apply and in addition the Host Institution hereby grants CRUK the perpetual and irrevocable right to use, and permit others to use, Funded Intellectual Property for:

    1. public policy and public information purposes on an exclusive basis, unless CRUK agrees otherwise (noting that such agreement will not be unreasonably withheld); and

    2. academic research and teaching without restriction on a non-exclusive basis (with, for clarity, the Host Institution being able itself and in collaboration with third parties to undertake academic research and teaching).

    Should the Host Institution receive monetary or non-monetary income directly or indirectly from the commercial exploitation of Funded Intellectual Property, then the Host Institution shall share such income, in a reasonable proportion, with CRUK.

  3. Project manager and key staff: The Host Institution will ensure that the Grant Activities are managed by a named project manager. The project manager and key staff members who will conduct the Grant Activities must be identified to CRUK before the Start Date, and may not be changed without consent from CRUK.

  4. Publications: In addition to the obligations set out in section 13 of the Grant Conditions, the Grantholder or Host Institution must send any publication or presentation of Results to CRUK for review at least four (4) weeks prior to submission for publication, so that CRUK can ensure that dissemination occurs in a manner that maximises public benefit. They must also comply with any publications policy issued by CRUK.

  5. Payments and deliverables: Section 6.3 of the Grant Conditions applies in all respects except, if specified in the GAL, frequency of payments. Instead, Grant payments will be made by CRUK in accordance with key deliverables and dates as set out in the GAL. 

  6. Definitions: The definitions set out in section 17 of the Grant Conditions apply to this Schedule B.
