All externally funded research proposals and applications, including research contracts and clinical trials, must be approved by your Division/Department and also then by Faculty Research Services Team.

Once your Division/Department has approved the proposal, your Faculty Research Services Team must authorise it. Research Services will verify the costings and ensure they conform with the external funder's terms and conditions and College policy.

You should ensure that your proposal is ready for approval at least five working days before a submission deadline.

Because externally funded research must now be logged on InfoEd, the authorisation of your research will occur electroncially and you can check progress online.

Please contact your Divisional/Departmental Adminstrator and/or your Faculty Research Services Team if you have any questions about the approval of research proposals/costings.
