REGISTRATION NOW OPEN

General Introduction
 
The aim of the sLoLa call registration is to ensure outline proposals are appropriately targeted to this call and to provide an early indication of the level of demand, team composition and research areas. Potential applicants (Principal Investigators) must register their interest in the call by 30th July 2020 at 16:00 by completing the survey below. Alternatively,  a word-formatted version of this survey can be downloaded here, appended with the PI's name, and submitted by email to bbsrc.lolagrants@bbsrc.ukri.org.

Please only submit your registration once, via either of these methods.  Failure to register will preclude application to the call.

UKRI-BBSRC may contact Research Organisations that appear likely to submit large numbers of outlines with the aim of moderating demand if the need becomes evident. We therefore require a central point of contact in your Research Grants Office to be named in your registration.

Please note that in order to facilitate coordination between multiple research offices at the same Research Organisation, UKRI-BBSRC may provide a collated list of registrations, including PI names, contact emails, and project titles, to each of the nominated research office contacts within the same Research Organisation. No further proposed project details will be shared.
  
No financial information is required at the registration stage.

If you have any questions about the registration form, please contact bbsrc.lolagrants@bbsrc.ukri.org

UKRI-BBSRC is committed to encouraging equality, diversity and inclusion by eliminating unlawful discrimination in accordance with the Equality Act 2010, and encouraging applications from research teams exploiting the strength of diversity in the wider UK research and innovation community.  Applicants are expected to consider these issues from the earliest stage of building their teams through to the delivery of awarded projects.  Consideration of equality, diversity and inclusion is important for all applications to UKRI-BBSRC for funding, and we expect particular care to be taken for larger projects involving multiple co-applicants such as those supported through the sLoLa scheme.

Section 2:
Ability to Deliver


UKRI-BBSRC's expectation is that the proposed programme of work will build on a significant body of prior research by the proposed team, and that collectively the ability of the team to lead and manage a large integrated program of work is evidenced by experience.

Question Title

This excludes equipment grants, studentships and grants that have not been competitively awarded.  Grants should have been held within the last 10 years (excluding career breaks).

Section 3:

The next questions request a summary of your proposed sLoLa programme.
