Organisation where the Grant would be held

Organisation is the research organisation where the grant would be held.  Only those organisations that have registered to submit proposals through Je-S are available for selection. If the required organisation does not appear in the list, please consult that organisation's research grant administration department regarding plans for Je-S registration. The organisation list is maintained by the Je-S Helpdesk.

If an organisation appears in the list, it does not necessarily mean that it is eligible to apply for research grants from the Council. Generally, research grants are open to UK Universities and similar organisations but eligibility can vary depending on the scheme. See the Investigators section and check the relevant Council's funding guide for further details and contacts concerning eligibility. 

The department list for the organisation is centrally maintained. If the required department is not listed or is named incorrectly, consult the organisation's research grant administration department, who should then contact the Je-S Helpdesk.

Your Reference

Use "Your reference" to help distinguish easily between proposals in users' Current Documents lists. The reference is intended to be a unique identifier for the proposal and is unrelated to the reference that the organisation would be asked to provide if a grant were awarded.  If an organisation does not have a system for referencing grant proposals, users should create their own.

Title of Research Project

The title should be as informative as possible, capturing the essence of the research.

It should not exceed 150 characters and must be completed using:

Standard ASCII characters and a limited set of accented characters may be used (Je-S character set). Avoid using specialist characters and symbols outside of the Je-S character set make this a link (e.g. mathematical symbols) because they may not transfer successfully to other computer systems.

- THE FOLLOWING IS COUNCIL SPECIFIC GUIDANCE -

 

AHRC specific - Start Date and Duration:

For Research Networking:

This scheme operates without formal deadlines in responsive-mode, although please note that closing dates will apply for calls issued under strategic programmes.  For responsive-mode applications, you are able to submit proposals at any time of the year and you will be informed of the outcome of your proposal within approximately five months of submission.

Your proposed start date must fall after the date when awards are announced. For this reason you should ensure that the start date of your project is at least six months from the point of submission.  For example if you submit a proposal on the 1st January, then the first possible start date for your project would be 1st July.

STFC specific - Organisation where the Grant would be held:

The Research in Industry agreement will be between STFC and the legal entity of the supplier corporation. In many companies, there is a holding company structure and the operating division is named differently from the legal entity. In other companies, the ultimate parent company is the same legal entity as the supplier. Please provide this information to help STFC to understand your corporate organisation.

The Ultimate Parent Company is the company where ultimate ownership or control of the legal entity resides.

The Legal Entity is the company which is the Supplier for the purposes of the proposed Research in Industry agreement.

The Organisation is the title of the operating division or company of the Supplier.

The Division or Department is the sub-organisation which is concerned with the supply.

SME Status

Against SME status, indicate (yes/no) whether the organisation is a Small or Medium-sized Enterprise according to the following European Commission definition:

A company is a small or medium-sized enterprise if it has fewer than 250 employees and either:

An independent enterprise has not more than 25% of its capital or voting rights owned by one enterprise or jointly by separate enterprises which are not SMEs. For example, if a company has 40% of its capital owned jointly by large companies, it is not an independent enterprise. Holdings by venture capital companies, institutional investors and public investment corporations are ignored, unless they exercise control over the company.
