    What Next?

    When your application is received it is anonymised and the Trustees’ Selection Panel make their judgements and decisions based on how your collaboration meet the criteria set, the quality of your submission and the impact your research or innovation is likely to have.

    If the Trustees wish to take your application further you will be invited to a Zoom discussion with a small group of Trustees so that we can gain a fuller picture of your intended research, your partners and the nature of the collaboration and raise any points for clarification.

    If your application is successful you will be given a provisional acceptance in July. The final grant award is dependent upon you completing an action plan, time-line and indicative budget in the early part of the Autumn Term. In addition, the Lead School will be asked to sign our Memorandum of Agreement which sets out the terms of our contract with you.
