Research grants:

Stage 2 – full proposal

Call status: Closed
Full proposal deadline for outline submitted 2014: January 2015 TBC

How to apply

Applicants of successful outline proposals will be invited to submit a full proposal to the following January responsive mode deadline. Submit your full proposal through the Research Councils' Joint Electronic Submission (Je-S) System.

Guidelines for submitting full applications will be provided to successful outline applicants with their feedback.

Applicants should note that all multi-institution full strategic lolas will be required to be submitted on a single Je-S form i.e. the whole of the requested amount for the project will be awarded to the institution of the lead principal investigator (PI).

Requests for equipment

In common with other Research Councils, BBSRC has a very restricted budget available for equipment and other capital items. Applicants requesting items of equipment costing over £10k in their full sLoLa applications will be required to follow our guidelines set out in our grants guide and on our 'research equipment guidance' webpage (see related links).

Pathways to impact

All submitted full applications will be expected to have a comprehensive Pathways to Impact document setting out appropriate activities to explore the major areas of potential impact for the research. This will include suitably comprehensive activity in postdoctoral development.


Standard eligibility rules apply, as described in our grants guide (see related links). In addition:


All proposals must be within our remit. We encourage multidisciplinary proposals but we strongly advise potential applicants to contact us beforehand to discuss the application if aspects of the proposal are outside of our remit.
