    • PROJECT DETAILS
    • SOURCE OF FUNDING
      • For industry co-funded projects, in most cases, additional company contribution (cash or in-kind) may be required to maintain the overall funding rate in line with State Aid rules. All relevant State Aid rules must be fully complied with.
    • PROJECT EXTENSION REQUESTS
      Prior to the HEA making this funding available to the CIT, some national research funders had established processes for applying for cost extensions and no-cost extensions. If a request to extend this project has already been submitted to a research funder, please provide details here.
      • Please note that all externally-funded projects selected for funding from the HEA Covid-19 fund will be expected to gain any necessary no-cost extension from the external funder before the HEA Covid-19 funding can be made available to the project.
    • BUDGET REQUEST
      • This application can include up to 3 postgrads and 3 research staff members.

        Note: Research materials cannot be funded as a stand-alone cost item. However, if the extension of the project requires additional research materials along with additional funding for staff salary and/or student stipend, then this could be eligible if properly justified.
