Points of contact
Your two main points of contact when drafting a proposal are your academic mentors and the Research Development Team.
Endeavour to get in contact with your Research Development Manager at the earliest stage. As of 1st March 2023, the Research Development Team will no longer support research applications sent to the Team closer than 5 working days from the funder deadline. For more information on this deadline, please click here.
Academic colleagues can advise you about the research background and your methodological approach.
Check with the funding body to see which projects they've previously funded and how your project fits with their funding priorities.
How the Research Development Team can help you:
- Offer feedback on how the proposal meets the scheme requirements.
- Make content accessible to a general audience.
- Carry out costings to populate your budget information.
- Source examples of previously successful applications.
- Simplify your way through the submission system and internal regulations.
- Offer general feedback.
- Find peer reviews.
- Put you in touch with Human Resources, who need to be informed of any researchers you'd like to hire.
