Grant Support Key Dates

Please see below for key dates for the Expression of Interest (EOI) process for external grant support for 2017/2018 funding submissions. If you have any potential research ideas or plans in mind for which you intend to seek external funding, you need to complete an EOI form and submit it by the due date. If you have more than one project in mind, please submit an EOI for each of them.

Please note, a separate Notice of Intent (NOI) process applies for Category 1 resubmissions. If you intend to resubmit a Cat 1 funding application in the upcoming grants round, please follow this process instead. The NOI process for resubmissions opens in September. Please see the second table below for key dates.

For further information, contact your Research Development Officer
