Therefore if you have applications with funder deadlines over the Christmas and New Year period, please note that the newly introduced deadlines for submitting research grant applications to ROO are based upon working days.                

Funder Deadlines between Saturday 22nd Dec 2018 – Tuesday 1st Jan 2019

Wednesday 12th December 2018

5 Working days before funder deadline

Friday 14th December 2018

Thursday 20th December 2018

In addition to these usual deadlines, due the ROO Christmas Closure please note the following additional requirements.

  • For funder deadlines on Wednesday 2nd January 2019, applications that need be at the ROO 1 working day before the funder deadline, should arrive by Thursday 20th December 2018.
  • Final Expenditure Statements for RCUK awards over the Christmas period must be confirmed to the Research Operations Office by Friday 30th November 2018. This is to allow Final Expenditure Statements to be submitted prior to the Office Christmas closure, as the due date will not be extended by RCUK.

Please ensure that your PIs are made aware of these arrangements.
