UKRI’s preventing harm in research and innovation policy (PDF, 8MB)
This policy sets out our expectations of individuals and organisations in their approach to safeguarding those involved in, or that come into contact with, the research and innovation activities that we fund.
The current UKRI standard FEC grant, training grant, Innovate UK competition, and Research England terms and conditions specify clauses that require organisations receiving UKRI funding to have appropriate policies and procedures in place to promote safeguarding and mechanisms for reporting and investigating any allegations relating to a breach in safeguarding. This policy is intended as a framework to support organisations with this.
