New CMVM grant submission process

New CMVM grant submission process

New CMVM grant submission process 

A new CMVM grant submission process is now live, as of 1st October 2021, and will run as a pilot for one year. 

All relevant information about the new process, including the policy document and guidelines can be found on the ERO website using this link<https://uoe.sharepoint.com/sites/EdinburghResearchOffice/SitePages/CMVM-Grant-Submission-ITS-Form.aspx>.

 

What do I need to do as a PI?

As soon as you know that you want to apply for a grant you need to complete an online Intent to Submit Form on the ERO website<https://uoe.sharepoint.com/sites/EdinburghResearchOffice/SitePages/CMVM-Grant-Submission-ITS-Form.aspx>.

The recommended time for submitting an intent to submit form is 8 weeks before the funder submission deadline but no later than 5 working days before the funder submission deadline.

Please note that if you have previously interacted with your Centre Manager/Administrator to get your costings from ERO, then please continue to do so. The Centre Manager/Administrator will complete the Intent to Submit form for you.

Response mode funding deadlines from UKRI, MRC and Wellcome are usually listed well in advance. For example a future application deadline for the Wellcome Discovery Award is the 24th March 2022. It is recommended that an interested CMVM Researcher completes the Intent to Submit form by the 27th January 2022.

What if the turnaround time between call announcement and submission deadline is less than eight weeks?

If you are in a situation where the turnaround time between call announcement and submission deadline is less than eight weeks, you should complete the Intent to Submit form as soon as a decision is made to apply for the funding.

Why has this change been introduced?

The new process will maximise the level of research support provided to PIs through early engagement. It will also enable research support teams from across CMVM and the wider University to react to the situations when the turnaround time between call announcement and submission deadline is less than eight weeks.
