Member subscriptions

Subscriptions are based on your organisation's spending on medical research in the UK

In 2017-18

  • Minimum subscription fee is £372
  • The standard subscription rate is 0.15543% of your annual expenditure on UK medical research in 2016
  • The maximum subscription fee is £115,000 (plus an agreed inflationary amount)

Nearly 90% of our income comes from member subscriptions. We further maintain our independence by capping subscriptions so that no member contributes more than 25% of our income.

The subscriptions policy is described in Regulation 6 of our Standing Orders. The subscription year runs from 1 April to 31 March. The rate is reviewed by our trustees each December and may increase by RPI.
