    If you have been approached to participate in a CRC-P, please inform your Head of School and Research Services to assist you with your application. Researchers proposing to participate in a CRC-P should complete a research funding request (RFR) accessed via ResearchMaster using fund scheme code "FND000014" and the name of the industry partner in the admin by section (Q5.1).

    When you are completing the RFR, please upload the draft application for the CRC-P and a completed “Internal certification: University co-contributions to a research grant application” (Appendix 2, CRC projects information sheet) as attachments. The RFR deadline is set two weeks prior to the external deadline. The Research Grants unit will review your application, provide feedback and facilitate signoff of the participant declaration.

    Please provide Research Services with a copy of the final CRC-P application.
