Every department charges overhead to finance the support activities at university-, faculty- and department level. The overhead is triggered by costs with an external counterpart.
The charge for overhead 2017 is:
- Education: 71,4 %
- Research: 33,6 %
Please observe that when applying for external funds you must also add the cost for localities, the total overhead then amounts to 43,6 %.
Internal invoices do not generate any overhead because they have internal counterparts. Assets do not generate any overhead either because they are not regarded a cost. An asset is for example a machine with a value exceeding 20 000 kr and an estimated lifespan of minimum three years.
