Following the Research Policy Committee meeting on 17 January 2013, we can confirm that from 8 February 2013 there will be new deadlines for submitting grant applications to the Research Operations Office (ROO).

In summary, Departments are asked to risk assess applications for the following and determine whether they are ‘higher’ or ‘lower’ risk:

  1. New sponsor – requires ethical and finance checks

  2. PI / co-I eligibility query

  3. Further budget checks required

  4. As agreed by Department and ROO Assistant Director

 The following deadlines will then apply:
