As our staff continue working remotely, to manage our workflow and prioritise activity relating to COVID-19  we would like to remind you of some changes to the way in which grant applications will be dealt with from 27 April:

  • a minimum of 4 weeks notice of your intention to submit to a particular scheme
  • a copy of the full proposal at least seven working days in advance of your funder’s deadline

Some funders have very short turnaround times which means that it's not always possible to give the Research Office 4 weeks' notice of intention to submit. In these circumstances, please contact ROO at the earliest opportunity so that we can assess the resource requirements to support the application. Further details can be found on the Research Office COVID-19 webpage.

Work is also on-going to update the funder guidance pages on the ROO website with a summary of funder's current position for award holders, new applications and COVID-19 research.
