The ESRC’s Future Research Leaders call is currently open with a closing date of 15 September 2011.
Universities are expected to consider applications very carefully prior to submitting them to the ESRC through this call, and all applications need to be supported with a letter from the PVC (Research, Enterprise and Internationalisation).
With this in mind BU has established a process for submissions to this call. All proposals must be submitted to a special version of our internal peer review scheme (the RPRS) first and must be signed off by Matthew Bennett as PVC (Research, Enterprise and Internationalisation) prior to submission.
For applicants interested in the scheme, the key internal dates are as follows:
|22 Aug||Proposals to be submitted to the RPRS and sent for review.|
|29 Aug||Proposal feedback to be returned to applicants.|
|29 Aug – 5 Sep||Applicants to finalise proposals based on reviewer feedback.|
|5 Sep||Final proposals to be sent to Matthew Bennett (via CRE Operations).|
|5 Sep – 15 Sep||Matthew Bennett to review and approve final proposals (and write the PVC letter of support). Once reviewed, CRE Operations will let applicants know when to submit via Je-S.|
|15 Sep||ESRC submission deadline.|
For further information on the RPRS please see the RPRS website: http://erss.bournemouth.ac.uk/researchsupport/bids/writing/rprs.html
If you are considering applying to the scheme but have not yet confirmed this with the CRE Operations team please could you do so as soon as possible.
