Research Cost Estimator

The Research Cost Estimator is a simple tool for quickly generating a basic cost for a potential research project.

  • It's intended as a pre-cursor to preparing a full costing using the Costing Tool.
  • Only basic information is required since it uses simplified assumptions about inflation and sponsor requirements. Estimates are rounded up to the next £1,000.
  • Once finalised, the estimate can be emailed internally to colleagues to view or prepare a full costing in the Costing Tool.
  • It's been developed under the umbrella of a much larger systems project for Integrated Research Information Systems (IRIS).
  • As it's still relatively new, we're keen to receive feedback and suggestions from users. Please email Kirsty Lindley with comments. 
  • You can access the Research Cost Estimator directly or from myResearch.
