** This is the date from which you will be able to select the call in the Project details screen on Je-S. You will not be able to start completing your proposal until then.
As a result of consultation with Research Organisations (ROs) the Research Councils* have agreed a common deadline submission time of 4.00pm on the advertised closing date. This time covers all calls and closing dates, except for those that are "open", for the Research Councils* and also other funders that use the Je-S System (link opens in a new window).
The time was chosen to give ROs sufficient time to submit proposals but provide an hour of support time past the deadline should problems arise. This change has been made as a direct result of feedback from ROs and aims to provided consistency and clarity. Closing dates will be strictly enforced.
Please note that STFC does not accept submission of hardcopy proposals. All proposal submissions should be made using the Je-S System (link opens in a new window).
