3. Costs we fund - MRC


3.4 Industrial partner costs

The level of contribution expected from the industrial partner depends on the intellectual property arrangements between the academic and industrial partners. Please refer to MRC Industry Collaborative Agreements (MICAs) for calls opening before 27 April 2022 or the Industry Collaboration Framework (ICF) for calls opening after 27 April 2022 for further information including what can be included under industrial partner costs.

Full details should be entered in section 4 of the MICA form. The cash or in-kind contribution of the industrial partner should be entered into the project partners contribution fields on the Je-S form.

Please note however that the general rule is that only the costs of the academic partner will be met if the grant is funded. This will be funded at the normal scheme FEC rate, usually 80%.
