International Networks

This scheme has now closed to those who have not already submitted an Outline Application.

International Networks are assessed via a two-stage process:

  • An invitation to progress to the second stage – preparation of a Detailed Application – will be sent to those whose Outline Application has been approved.

Guidance on preparing a Detailed Application is only available to applicants once they have received an invitation to progress from the Outline stage.

The Detailed Application should be an elaboration of the Outline Application. Significant changes in the stated intention, aims or objectives of the research are not permitted. The total budget and personnel requested in the Detailed Application should be the same as that provided in the outline; the only budget changes that are allowable relate to adjustments in salary costs, which should conform to current pay scales.

Timing for Detailed Applications

Please note, the September 2016 deadline has been (exceptionally) brought forward to 4pm on 25 August.
