Proposal timeline

 

The suggested timeline below is intended to give an idea of elements that you may need to consider for any bid. Larger scale projects often require additional planning and can take longer in regards to collating all of the relevant and requisite information/documents as well as in overseeing inclusion of partner institutes. We have grouped the items under the most relevant heading with links to further details/advice. Many items could sit under more than one category and in all matters, initial contact with your School Research Development Officer will help in identifying specific requirements for your bid and working on a more personalised timeline.
