Closing date deadlines

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 is the time by which an RO submitter must have submitted the proposal to STFC so applicants are asked to ensure that they enable time for their RO to process their application. 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.

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.

* - AHRC, BBSRC, EPSRC, ESRC, MRC, NERC and STFC
