Key Dates and Deadlines

Application Windows

In order to allow the GSLS to respond to changing RD needs there will be two application windows for the 2015-2016 academic year.

 Process Overview

 PLEASE NOTE - Round 2 is now open until 31st December 2015

Budget Distribution

It is the aim of the GSLS to allocate 60% of available funds to projects in the first round of bids and the remainder of the money in the second round.  These guidelines are flexible and we reserve the right to distribute funding in different allocations.

UPDATE: 50% of funds were allocated in Round 1 for the academic year 2015-16

Feedback Survey and Reports

All funded activities must carry out a standardised Feedback Survey to gather feedback from participants to help continue to improve the RD activities offered by the GSLS.  The results of the survey are to be returned to the Researcher Developer for Life Sciences within 1 calendar month of the event (or last in the series of events).  

All funded activities must also return an Evaluation Report and a Financial Report by the deadlines indicated above.

Please note that if you are reapplying for funding for an activity that was the subject of a previous successful bid then you must have submitted these reports before the current funding deadline.

Information on what these reports must contain is provided in the Reporting Back section.

Deadline for Spending

All expenditure must be incurred and recorded on the University's Financial System (UFS) by the 30th September 2016.  All unspent funds will be re-claimed.  No funds can be carried over into the following academic year.
