Restricted calls are calls in which the funder requires the University to coordinate and/or preselect the applications that can be submitted for consideration. Typically these are calls where the number of applications an institution can submit or the number of awards the funder will make is limited. The sponsor may also have other requirements – e.g. that the institution ensures there is no overlap between proposals submitted to the same call. Some calls also request that the applications include a support letter signed by the Vice-Chancellor or the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research.
Internal coordination of applications
In light of this, the University's Research Policy Committee have set up a procedure for the internal coordination of applications for such calls and has tasked the Research Strategy Office with implementing the procedure.
