Abstract
    A study of research funding at Memorial University's Marine Sciences Research Laboratory shows that true costs far exceed support from grants and contracts alone. Research grant levels have to be matched by a similar level of support for infrastructure, and other university-supplied support (mostly salaries) may amount to twice that supplied by grants. Faced with declining external support for general infrastructure, universities can ill afford to become involved in scientific mega-projects. There is little evidence that increased funding enhances productivity.
