Statement from the CSO Regarding COVID-19 and Response Mode Funding Committees

Given the impacts of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic on the research community, NHS and Universities as well as our own operations, the Chief Scientist Office (CSO) has taken the decision to suspend the activities of the two CSO response mode committees (TCS and HIPS).  We have written to those working on full applications in the current cycle, which we now plan to be considered at the scheduled December 2020 committee meetings. 

We will no longer be proceeding with the June 2020 deadline for new applications. Therefore the next deadline for new outline applications is 8th January 2021.

Our statement is available on the CSO website: http://www.cso.scot.nhs.uk/

Any situational updates will be posted on the CSO website
