The demand management measures implemented by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) mean that there are restrictions on the number of research applications that Manchester Metropolitan University is permitted to submit to each Standard Grant round. This can include applications that are externally led.
In order to manage the process, researchers who wish to develop an application for the next NERC Standard Grant round (deadline of 16 January 2018) are required to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) by 17:00 on Monday 02 October using the form available here.
The EOI form includes guidance notes about demand management and the internal selection process. To return the completed EOI form – or if you have any questions about a possible NERC application – please email Justin Smith email@example.com.
