Terms & Conditions

Please find below a summary of our terms and conditions and Data Privacy Statement. For full information please email us at [email protected]

Standard grant agreement:

A standard grant agreement between Arup, on behalf of the Resilience Shift, and the selected Collaborator will be issued to any Collaborators wishing to engage with the Resilience Shift initiative.

The standard agreement is based on the Head Grant Agreement that Arup has signed with the Lloyd’s Register foundation for the creation of Resilience Shift.


The Resilience Shift encourages its collaborators to announce grants and the outputs and outcomes produced as a result from the grant activities. Grantees or sub-consultants will be asked to coordinate with the Resilience Shift and promote the dissemination of project milestones and output using, for example, publications, events, blogs and social media.

External publicity that you would like to produce, including online or offline press releases and statements, will be reviewed by our communications staff before being published. You will be free to use social media to disseminate the Resilience Shift activities, and we encourage you to do so in order to expand the outreach of our activities.

You will be asked to contact us prior to using logos or trademarks for the Resilience Shift, Arup and/or Lloyd’s Register Foundation for external publicity.

Intellectual property guidance

The overall goal of the Resilience Shift is to make all outputs of RS funded activities publicly available in order to maximise the benefit to society from the IP arising from our collective activities.

Where a grantee or sub-consultant is providing any background Intellectual Property, these rights will of course remain with the original owner. We aim to adopt a flexible approach to IP and will discuss specific details on a case-by-case basis.

Milestones and deliverable schedule

Prior to appointing a grantee, The Resilience Shift will need to ensure that the issued grants will be spent in line with the purpose and objectives of the initiative. In order to fulfill this objective, Grantees will be asked to submit a description of the project outputs, milestones, deliverables and due date. This is not required for the initial submissions to an Expression of Interest.


Proposals should always be submitted without VAT.

Reporting requirements

In line with the requirement to demonstrate how the grant funds are being spent in accordance with the Resilince Shift purpose, Grantees will be required to include reporting in their grant agreement schedule of work. The reporting will report progress against the milestones and deliverables schedule submitted in the grant agreement. This reporting will include:

  • A simple monthly update on the project progress. This can be in the form of a monthly conference call, face-to-face meetings or written reports of progress, to be agreed with the Resilience Shift team when formalising the Grant Agreement.
  • A detailed report on the conclusion of each project phase and recommendations on the next phase of the work. The timing of this reporting will depend on the project schedule and will be agreed with the Resilience Shift team prior to the signature of the grant.
  • For multi-year grants, an annual progress reporting due September / October, to be agreed with the RS team when formalising the Grant Agreement.

Grantees will also be required to submit financial reporting in order to demonstrate the expenditure of the grants funds in accordance to the Grant purpose. The Resilience Shift will allow grantees to submit reporting in line with their own reporting cycles as much as possible.

Selection of competitive calls for proposals

An independent Technical Advisory Group (TAG) has been created to conduct independent peer reviews of grant proposals and outputs. By appointing the TAG, the participation of Arup (and Lloyds Register Group (LRG)) in the granting process can be guaranteed while maintaining the integrity of the programme, as the TAG is independent of the two organisations. Any competitive calls for proposals will be, therefore, independently reviewed by the TAG, which will recommend the appointment of the most successful grant applications.  

The selection criteria for competitive calls for proposals will be defined on a case by case basis and advertised at the moment of issuing the call in our website.

Standard payment terms and invoicing instructions

The Grant will be paid by installments as follows:

40% upon contract signing

40% upon successful completion and submission of an interim deliverable (to be agreed on a case by case basis)

20% upon successful completion and submission of a final deliverable (to be agreed on a case by case basis)
