E-submission of research proposals
The research councils and a number of charities now require researchers to submit applications using an electronic submission system when applying for grants.
For example, Plymouth University is registered to use the research council's joint electronic submission system (Je-S), therefore most applications to AHRC, BBSRC, EPSRC, ESRC, MRC, NERC and STFC are electronic.
Please remember that you must complete the internal grant approval and project costing forms, which require signatures, even if you are applying using the electronic submission.
The funding advisors and specialist advisors within research and innovation, are registered to most systems. If you have any questions about electronic submission after reading the relevant guidance, from downloading forms to submitting an application, contact them as soon as possible by emailing email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
