There are no time limits for the feasibility stage, but it is important to observe the conditions and deadlines sent by funders, and to be as realistic and accurate as possible when drafting the protocol and costings. This will ensure a more efficient passage for the study through the internal and external approvals that are needed before the study can go ahead.

Depending on the type of study being undertaken, the tasks related to feasibility assessment will require input and collaboration from a variety of stakeholders.
