If you are writing a grant proposal

  1. Please inform the Research Operations Manager (ROM) Rusudan Svanidze and Director of Research (DoR) Dr. Eva-Maria Graefe  of your intent to apply for research funding.
  2. The ROM, Rusudan Svanidze, will assist you with the InfoEd form and costing. They will also advise you of the Research Services deadline. Please note that all submitted applications go via Research Services. For this reason you MUST allow 5 clear working days before the published deadline of the granting body.
  3. The DoR will normally assign you a "mentor" to help increase the quality of the proposal. You and your mentor should decide on the appropriate form of support, if any. After a grant application has been awarded or declined, the DoR would appreciate a short communication by you (and your mentor) concerning any observations/conclusions from the process that may be relevant for future applicants.
