Where do I begin?
Preparing a research application involves so much more than simply writing a proposal. You must consider funders’ rules, your eligibility for the call, the resources you will need, your budget, any ethical or data management implications for the project, and a timeframe for the application. Good planning will pay off once the grant is up and running, and so you must ensure you have thought through your plan in detail, and involved the right people during the preparation stage.
Before starting, you must read the call guidance carefully to ensure your proposal fits with the scheme and that the costs you wish to include are eligible. Our Research Development Managers can assist with advising on eligibility, offering one-to-one guidance for researchers seeking out appropriate funding opportunities.
Once you have determined that you are eligible, and that the scheme in question fits your research well, you’ll need to contact your Research Services Officer (RSO) for guidance on how to proceed.
