Unsuccessful BBSRC research grant applications must not be resubmitted, unless invited by the committee. Applications are checked in the peer review administration process to identify any uninvited resubmissions which will be rejected.
Resubmissions will be considered where they have been invited by the committee, or if the application is substantially different in terms of objectives and/or work to be carried out. In which case permission from the committee programme staff must be obtained, and the application must include a covering letter declaring it as a resubmission, detailing the modifications which merit its re-consideration.
Feedback on applications can be obtained by e-mailing the relevant committee under which your application was reviewed.
For responsive mode applications, all written requests for feedback will be acknowledged within 1 week, advising when feedback will be provided. Feedback is provided within 3 months of the Committee Chairs' meeting.
After this point detailed feedback will not be available as some information will not be retained beyond this period, in line with our retention plan. If an application is not assessed as meeting the ‘international quality’ threshold it will not be discussed. Therefore, only limited feedback will be available in such circumstances.
