The RD Team provide expert advice and assistance on research applications. Services and level of co-ordination vary dependent on size of opportunity and complexity of application, and include: development of application focus and cohesive narratives; writing non-research content eg project management sections; generation of contextual data and information; review of proposal; specialist advice on pathways to impact and liaison with partners e.g. production and signatures for letters of support to ensure commitment to the application.
Where this is a quota or other restrictions placed by the funder, the RDT are responsible for the creation and implementation of processes to support application selection and related peer review.
