Institutionally coordinated opportunities

Some funding calls have restrictions in terms of the number of applications that can be submitted by an institution or require the University to have in place other forms of demand management, eligibility or quality control.

Where such rules apply, the Research and Innovation Service will manage the University’s response to the call by designing and running a selection process to ensure that the restrictions of the funder are adhered to and that we submit the best possible application(s).

For all our institutionally coordinated opportunities where there is a demand management or decision-making panel, we consider the composition of the panel and have ED&I as the first main agenda item.

Processes can include:

  • outline or expressions of interest stages, with a selected number chosen by an internal panel to proceed to a full application
  • workshops to help applicants develop applications to certain schemes or to pitch their early ideas to colleagues
  • review of proposals to ensure fit with the call and eligibility of the applicant(s)
  • networking events to enable researchers to build teams
  • support of the chosen applicant(s) including advice on proposal development and peer review of the final draft

Below is a list of opportunities that are coordinated centrally.
